Development of single well geothermal power production
Technology concept/solution: Crust Harvest is developing a geothermal processor producing baseload energy (24/7) from both dual well (injection and production) resources and single well resources. The technology is based on a thermodynamic process using a supercritical fluid in a closed loop. It provides significantly better efficiency compared to traditional geothermal energy production that uses water. The processor can be used in abandoned oil and gas wells, traditionally deep geothermal wells, and geothermal reservoirs, and will produce clean, affordable, and renewable electricity and heat.
