Micro-Geothermal

Distributed microgrid low-enthalpic solutions will revolutionise the geothermal industry. We call it micro-geothermal.

Our technology picks up small temperature differences at shallow levels, turning them into meaningful electricity to power a rural village, a hotel, or public buildings.

Using drilled shallow geothermal, we create community microgrids which heat pump systems. These, in turn, feed our highly tuned, low-enthalpic geothermal-focused ORC engines which are meticulously scaled and refined to meet this challenge.

Our optimised approach delivers electricity to remote, off-grid and grid-connect geothermal opportunities.

We have worked with leading heat pump manufacturers to refine our techniques which will not be easily copied or replicated. Extensive research has helped tune our ORC devices and heat pumps to address the specific problems present in this application.

Geothermal – anywhere on earth

Let us show you how economically viable outputs can be created anywhere – not just in areas of geothermal hot springs but in London, Singapore, Toulouse, the Australian outback or the African Rift.

This has enormous potential to revolutionise the lives of people living in a multitude of communities – from city centres in western nations to remote areas in under-developed parts of the world.

Greenstorc provides rural communities and townships in developing nations with clean, 24-hour power, and involves them in the ownership, management, sale and usage of the power facility. Over time, neighbouring microgrids can be linked and integrated into a broader demand response network.

Mid-depth geothermal

Our heat to power technology can be powered naturally wherever volcanoes, earthquakes and warm springs are present.

Water temperatures of 40-100C can be used to drive our low-enthalpic devices.

Drilling is generally about USD 30 per foot or USD 100 per meter. In good geothermal sites, temperatures should rise by no less than 6C per 100 meters.

A 1000m hole is considered shallow for geothermal and could yield sufficient pressure and water to generate more than a megawatt – competitive with wind, but with the bonus of 24-hour production.

Micro-Geothermal

We’re testing heat produced by cheap, practical drilling equivalent to the depth of a Texas water well – with multiple applications worldwide.

The technology developed alongside our German partners involves heat exchangers used in a set (20-50) of shallower geothermal holes to effectively amplify available heat to energy production levels.
