Research & Development

 

Our company strategy currently includes an emphasis on Research & Development for current and future geothermal projects, including our ongoing projects in Africa, South America, Central Europe, and India.

Research Projects

GEG also employs a team of Research Assistants, all professional geologists from Reykjavik University (Háskólinn í Reykjavík), a local university here in Iceland, who are completing their final theses. 

Each of their MSc. projects are connected to our ongoing and potential GEG projects. Learn about their ongoing research below.

Project Title – Technical, Economic, Social, and Environmental Assessment of Geothermal Resources in Chile
 
Aim – Identify the most favourable systems within the country, by creating a methodology that can be universally applied to comprehensively assess geothermal resources
 
Researcher – Alfonso Mohor

 

 

Project Title – Geothermal Energy Utilization with a Value-Added Lithium Extraction Component
 
Aim – Create a numerical model to estimate the overall unit cost of geothermal resource exploitation for energy & lithium extraction
 
Researcher –  Jennifer Jolliffe

 

 

Project Title – Re-purposing Oil and Gas Wells for Geothermal Energy Use in Ecuador
 
Aim – Create a thermo-economical model in order to investigate the potential “products” available from re-purposing oil & gas wells for geothermal, such as power generation and/or direct use applications
 
Researcher – Laura Constanza Bocanegra Rodríguez
