Geothermal energy is energy derived from the heat of the earth. Cool water seeps into the Earth's crust, is heated up, and then rises to the surface. Once this heated water is circulated to the surface, it can be captured and used to drive electric generators. The heated water can reliably produce clean, environmentally friendly electricity. It can also reduce the price of food in your community through the use of greenhouse heating, fish farming and many other applications.
Geothermal energy can help solve some of Canada’s greatest challenges such as providing reliable inexpensive energy, economic and job opportunities and reducing CO2 emissions.
