2017-09-06: Industry, Researchers Begin Shallow Geothermal Energy Mapping Initiative
The Canadian GeoExchange Coalition (CGC) announced today that work has begun to create a detailed resource map of ground thermal conductivity at depths up to 200 meters (650 ft) in one of Canada's most densely populated areas. The project team at Quebec's Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) is applying original algorithms to vertical geothermal borehole data reported under CGC System Certification, with support from engineering firm SNC-Lavalin and a grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada.
2017-06-07: CGC Joins Energy Council of Canada
The Canadian GeoExchange Coalition (CGC) this month joined the Energy Council of Canada (ECC), one of the country's premier policy dialogue groups. The move is aimed at bolstering geothermal heat pump technology's presence in energy policy discussions and at growing the industry's presence in the Canadian energy portfolio and discussions.“The Energy Council of Canada is our country's representative on the World Energy Council, and will form a central node in developing Canada's energy information and policymaker tools” said Ted Kantrowitz, CGC CEO. “CGC has long operated in a spirit of openness and dialogue, and we look forward to adding our industry's contribution to the broad and high-level energy discussions taking place” he added.
