mission statement

"To research, inform, and implement on a national scale the engineering concepts of Enhanced Geothermal Energy in Malta"

GEROM is an independent and non-profit organization founded in April 2007

preamble

This presentation cannot seek to give 'answers'

Its aim is to hopefully stir up interest and awareness

Are we considering all possibilities?
Can we adapt heat mining technology and design it to our needs?
Are we ready to make a bold step in reducing oil import dependence?
Are we content with reducing our carbon emissions by just a tiny fraction?

We're cooperating with partners through the world to enhance ways in which we can create greener energy for industry. It's part of a broader drive to create more earth friendly energy generation. The industrial sector in particular could seek to reap the benefits of clean energy. Energy intensive production such as automated welding machines in automotive production, can vastly reduce carbon footprints by utilising eco friendly energy sources.

Renewable Energy Matchmaking: Newest Key to Reaching 2020 Sustainability Goals
The siren call of 2020 corporate environmental sustainability goals is quickly getting louder, as corporate leaders realize they must go further today to achieve their sustainability targets for tomorrow. Increased use of renewable energy is an ambitious goal for some of the world’s largest companies, as 59 percent of the Fortune 100 and nearly two-thirds of the Global 100 have set GHG emissions reduction commitments, renewable energy commitments or both, according to a recent Ceres’ report, Power Forward: Why the World’s Largest Companies Are Investing in Renewable Energy. One global consumer products company, for example, plans to derive 30 percent of its energy from clean sources by 2020.
