The potential for runaway greenhouse warming is real – and has never been more present.
As we rally to address this growing crisis, it has become clear that climate change technology and innovation needs to be a focus. With this in mind, we launched our AGGAT (Above Ground Geothermal and Allied Technology) program. Which looks closely at ORC technology aimed at taking abundant and widespread hydrothermal and wasteheat resources and converting them into affordable and usable clean energy.
October 2012 – October 2022
Mounting international pressure has forced many countries to relook their commitment to climate change. With the Paris Agreement in December 2015 adopting the first ever universal, legally binding global climate deal between 195 countries.
And, as renewable energy investments continue to gain momentum in growth worldwide – so too do the business opportunities for our members. On the ground, we’ve recognised this market potential creating this R&D program so our members are well positioned to take advantage of it.
Following extensive market research, our role was first to qualify this R&D project as a real and achievable opportunity for our members. Creating a strong program schedule to effectively harness low enthalpy energy for power generation and waste heat conversion as a result.
Since then, we’ve worked closely with our program members and partners to manage the complex and changing international and local legislative frameworks. Challenging the development of this clean energy project along the way.
Establishing a hub of highly specialised expertise in-house, we’re now well placed to test and advise during the ORC development phase. Bringing innovation and a refined technology offering to create competitive models that pave the way into global markets.
We also work to develop stake holder trust, gain approvals, secure funding and help manage risk throughout the project lifecycle – connecting with prospective end users and test sites.
