Heat can be found almost everywhere, but not all heat can be profitably turned into electricity.
By providing the project financing, our local companies can generate meaningful returns by building the best possible power plants for each location.
We work collaboratively with our subsidiaries to deploy heat power plants worldwide. We handle financing, market research and technology knowledge – while our power companies manage the project sourcing, evaluation and qualification processes, and execution.
GLOBALLY: BASELOAD CAPITAL
By offering early-stage capital, equity and/or debt, we can accelerate the development of heat power projects and ensure meaningful returns.
We do extensive research to identify potential new markets, then we investigate and help secure land-lease and power-purchase agreements.
We are experts in the technology required to deploy heat power plants, and know what it takes to maximize uptime.
LOCALLY: OUR PORTFOLIO COMPANIES
Our power companies evaluate geological conditions, map plant locations and check grid capacity, and establish relationships with key stakeholders.
EVALUATION & QUALIFICATION
For final confirmation, the power companies run water samples, gravity surveys, more. Then they sign the land-lease and off-take agreements, and obtain local permits.
Local teams manage the actual project development, in parallel with permitting, site preparation, technology procurement, etc.
HEAT POWER EXPLAINED
Heat power is a form of renewable energy that can be harnessed from pre-existing heat sources. This includes both geothermal heat and industrial waste heat. Unlike wind and solar power, heat power can provide a constant stream of electricity, regardless of the weather or the time of day.
PLANTS THAT DO MORE THAN PRODUCE POWER.
Introducing the heat power ecosystem: it generates electricity and is a source of district heating. It keeps fish happy, and greenhouses temperate. Minerals like lithium and silica can be filtered from the hot water at heat power plants and sold at a profit. In the future, our plants might also be combined with solar and energy storage solutions. New technologies are making other applications feasible, and a new, integrated approach is transforming the way we build power plants. Explore the growing heat power system below.
HOW MUCH ELECTRICITY IS THAT?
A single 1MW power plant can produce enough electricity to power between 600 and 800 homes.
