Heat has power

Today, more than 50% of the energy we use globally is wasted in the form of heat. Industries such as steel, aluminum and shipping generate large amounts of unused heat, and so does the power industry. Heat can also be found underneath almost 90% of our planet’s surface. We believe these two heat sources represent unlimited potential.

Heat power is an affordable form of renewable energy that can be harnessed anywhere on the planet. Unlike solar or wind, heat power is independent of weather conditions or time of day. Because heat power can generate electricity 24/7, it can provide what is called “baseload” power – a key component in the power grid. Today, most baseload power is provided by nuclear energy, or fossil fuels, mainly in the form of coal. We cannot ease our dependence on nuclear and fossil fuels until we deploy a renewable baseload of power.

But we cannot do it alone. We need developers, drilling expertise, investors, plant operators, turbine manufacturers, governments, and communities to join us.

Quote from GatesNotes

There is a phenomenal amount of energy stored up as heat under the Earth’s surface—many times more than we could get from all the known coal and oil reserves in the world. Tapping this source involves pumping steam or hot water from underground to drive turbines.
