Today, more than ever, there exists an urgent need for the generation of clean, renewable, alternative energy.  The motivations for the development of new energy resources are clear:

1) Unpredictable fuel prices
2) Diminishing fossil fuel resources
3) Growing concern about environmental degradation
4) Dependence on foreign oil

Geothermal energy, because it is an unlimited resource and available 24/7, offers clear advantages over other forms of renewable energy such as wind and solar.

GTherm™, Inc. is dedicated to advancing geothermal technology in order to improve the efficiency of harvesting the earth’s heat energy, reduce the overall cost and timeframe of power plant development and diminish further the potential of any negative impact to the environment.

The GTherm portfolio of patent-pending technologies eliminates many of the limiting factors of current water-based Enhanced Geothermal Systems.  GTherm technology utilizes widely available ‘dry hot rock’ geothermal energy, creates no water or air pollution, produces renewable power with a zero carbon footprint and has a very limited visual impact.  GTherm solutions can be utilized to inexpensively produce a consistent supply of clean, reliable electricity.
