Having a consistent source of energy output is crucial for the cooling of sensitive products — such as fresh produce. As the renewable energy source with the highest capacity factor, geothermal clearly comes out on top as the best option for cold storage and air conditioning applications such as these.
Our efforts are a key component of GEG’s commitment to the increased food security and more sustainable livelihoods of communities around the world, and also aligns with our company mission towards environmental sustainability.

The economic viability of exploiting low-enthalpy geothermal systems for power generation is a challenge in many regions. Geothermal energy can provide a direct source of energy, as is required for many processes which utilize direct electric energy from the nearby grid.
One of these processes is cooling, or cold storage. By optimizing the technology and the exploitation of the available resource, a variety of cooling applications can become possible.
Possible uses for geothermal cooling:
Air Conditioning for Buildings and Data Centers
Chillers and Freezers
