Geothermal opportunities abound in Alberta, including within our existing oil and gas wells. Geothermal energy can power community growth, as is being demonstrated by the Sustainaville project.
Sustainaville will use geothermal to ‘grow a whole community’ through generating geothermal base load power from geothermal, as well as geothermal heat for a community hot spring, district heating, biomass operation, and local food production (fish farm, greenhouse, etc).
Sustainaville is being built in a BC community, less than 100 kilometers across the Alberta border, and will demonstrate the economic and environmental potential of geothermal energy. This project has attracted financial support and has entered demonstration phase with commencement of drilling in June 2018.
