Tuya Terra Geo Corporation (TT Geo), a BC-based company, working in collaboration with Geothermal Management Company Inc. (GMC) and their respective teams, were retained by Geoscience BC in September 2015 to identify and evaluate direct-use geothermal energy opportunities for BC communities, providing them with data and an opportunity to potentially lower greenhouse gas emissions and advance economic development through the use of geothermal energy.
The CNGD is a publicly available web portal created by CanGEA. The purpose of the project is to provide publicly available maps, databases, protocols, and tools which may be used as a resource and/or investment tool for assessing and developing geothermal resources in Canada.
There are currently databases/maps for 3 provinces/territories: Alberta, British Columbia, and Yukon.
With the support of the Alberta Government, CanGEA commissioned a study to illustrate the size of the opportunity to co-produce geothermal energy from existing oil & gas wells in Alberta. They worked with Fuzeium to create an interactive dashboard to easily connect with the results of this study and imagine how geothermal co-production could impact and benefit their communities.
There are over 60,000 wells in Alberta that have potential for geothermal applications, all of which can been seen and filtered here.
The Canadian Geothermal Research Council (CanGRC) review is a biannual digital publication that is devoted to showcasing Canadian geothermal research, whether it be research conducted on Canadian land or international geothermal projects done by Canadian researchers. The CanGRC review is distributed free of charge to all members. Additionally, all past issues are made available for download from this page.
