Eavor Technologies announces new funding and partnerships
Innovative geothermal company eyes Saskatchewan for new development
Eavor Technologies is pleased to announce the awarding of new grants and partnerships that will serve to further advance their unique and innovative geothermal technology. The most recent commitments, from Alberta Innovates, provides funding towards the construction of Eavor’s first full-scale reference site. The site will also serve as an ongoing R&D facility to further develop this game-changing technology.
Unlike traditional geothermal, Eavor’s patented Made-in-Canada technology (called Eavor-Loop) does not require volcanic type temperatures or permeable aquifers. This not only removes the need for fracking, water treatment or water reinjection, it also makes geothermal massively scalable for the very first time.
With development projects under consideration in both Alberta and the Netherlands, Eavor has also turned its attention to the province of Saskatchewan. While geologically similar to Alberta, Saskatchewan has been identified as having practical green energy objectives, as well as an already well-established and straight-forward geothermal regulatory framework as part of its Prairie Resilience initiative.
“Eavor-Loop is arguably the World’s first truly scalable form of green baseload power and can build off Western Canada’s natural oil & gas skillset,” said John Redfern, President & CEO of Eavor Technologies. “We have an opportunity for the prairies to be a true leader in this modern green technology, not just in North America but across the world.”
Eavor has also recently been invited to work with Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) for the next year. This exciting program is focused on the development of massively scalable, science-based companies. CDL has programs with Universities and strategic investors in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Halifax as well as New York.
