Rock Energy’s patented technology provides secure access to the vast amount of energy which is stored beneath our feet. The Energy Well System 5000 is suitable for larger scale heating system like airports, district heating and combined heat and power systems.
How it works
Through state of the art drilling equipment and technical expertise, a heat exchanger is drilled at 5000 meters below the surface. Water flows freely in a closed loop through the parallel wells at the bottom, achieving high temperatures by direct contact with the hot rock. The closed loop creates a safe, cost effective and continual cycle, and hot water resurfaces and can be used directly for heating and/or power generation.
