AltaRock Energy, Inc.
AltaRock is a leading energy production and technology company that makes use of innovative technologies to turn the natural heat within the Earth into electricity. Geothermal energy remains a massively under-utilized renewable resource, despite being one of the only sources of “baseload” or continuous renewable electricity production. AltaRock is uniquely positioned to facilitate the development of geothermal energy sources into the 21st Century and is working on a number of projects to do just that.
AltaRock is no ordinary geothermal company. By implementing our proprietary technology, we are able to safely and effectively create geothermal reservoirs, using a process known as EGS – Engineered Geothermal Systems – that in turn can be used to power electricity plants. Our Newberry EGS Demonstration project – supported by the Department of Energy - is an example of this type of bold innovation. Our technology and expertise can also be used in existing geothermal fields across the globe to safely and materially increase production – from a variety of under-performing and abandoned sites.
We are also targeting deployment of our technology and project development solutions across related industries in the resources sector, helping to turn produced water or wastewater disposal issues into safe, clean, renewable energy.
At AltaRock we are geologists, engineers, technologists and business people with a deep understanding and a passion for managing and optimizing natural resources to provide clean energy to power human activities. But we’re more than that: we are part of our community’s and the national drive towards using innovation to produce more cost-efficient sources of domestic energy, while maintaining our principles of environmental stewardship.
