Sustainability

Sustainable development is: living to meet the present, without compromising the future.

EGS can be the means to move ahead to meet the future.

The resource is so vast that many decades will pass tapping on ‘free’ energy.

Heat mining can be considered a finite resource rather than a renewable. Vertical and lateral expansion and field ‘rotation’ ensure a refreshing of the source.
