This week we interview John Redfern, the President and CEO of Eavor. His company has invented a novel way for harvesting the earth’s geothermal energy based, in part, on their knowledge from drilling oil and gas wells. The solution is called the Eavor-Loop. The technology overcomes many of the issues that have hampered traditional applications. For instance, it is not limited to niche geographies and it circulates naturally, instead of using an energy intense pump. The Eavor-Loop has been successfully piloted in Alberta, and assuming the solution is successful at large-scale deployment, it would be a step forward into a low carbon future.
