How GT Energy Works

Human use of geothermal energy is neither new nor revolutionary. It's one of our oldest sources of clean energy, and it's used all over the world for everything from cooking, bathing, and heating homes and factories, to driving some of the largest, most technically advanced energy systems. Unlike wind, solar and other alternative energy sources, geothermal is consistent, firm, dependable base-load power. It feeds directly into existing energy distribution networks, as well as the new "smart grids" that monitor usage to maximize efficiency. IDG's approach to geothermal energy production is unique. We customize our technology to fit the local environment. And our community-based business model means benefits are shared more equitably. As we've seen in New Zealand, where sheep graze on the hillsides next to geothermal wells, subsurface extraction doesn't need to harm surrounding plant and animal life. Geothermal development is sustainable energy development at its best. Learn More...
