What is Geothermal Energy ?

Geothermal is emission-free energy that is extracted from the Earth’s natural, stored heat.
It is one of the few energy sources that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and has the potential to solve Australia’s future energy concerns.

Three types of geothermal energy are under development in Australia:

Hot Rock (or Enhanced Geothermal Systems / EGS) geothermal energy.
Hot Sedimentary Aquifer (HSA) geothermal energy
Direct heat projects

The Australian geothermal industry is growing rapidly with almost 400 geothermal tenements nationwide and around $1.5 billion in work programs underway.

Geoscience Australia estimates that by exploiting just 1% of the geothermal heat resource within the top 5 kms of the Earth’s crust we could provide 26,000 times our annual energy consumption.

September report calls for migrant visa overhaul on geothermal projects

Western Australian energy companies should resist imposing stricter migrant worker in the wake of COVID-19 and instead speed up the entry of talent who can help spark economic recovery, a study by Perth Immigration Lawyer recommends. Top talent countries like the USA are implementing harder rules for migrant workers, Australia is poised to benefit from the entry of skilled individuals whose competencies are in high demand.
