What's Geothermal ?

Our Vision

Geothermal is a Renewable Energy and, like other RE, requires an assessment of the resource, before development.
A Geothermal installed MW produces much more MWh of energy than solar or wind (up to 5-8 times), and does it continuously. But, the exploitation of this resource is not so attractive for all the investors worldwide.
This is why the evaluation of the producing potential of a promising geothermal site requires more time and more money than measuring sun irradiation or wind speed yearly distribution. And specific competences...
A solid investment requires the best knowledge of the characteristics of the Geothermal Resource (in terms of its Quality, Quantity and Sustainability). But not only: in case of a greenfield investment, is also required to predict the interactions that should occur between the existing Geothermal Reservoir and the future Power Plants, during the long-term exploitation.
So, to do a solid greenfield investment are necessary not only specialistic competences, but also the best multidisciplinary experience in all the geothermal chain value, from its early stage.

About the Future

Our Mission

STEAM Team wants to give its contribution to the development of Geothermal Energy that has worldwide a very high potential, because many of the most promising areas are not yet exploited or explored. East Africa, South and Central America, Asian Plateau are some of the new greenfield frontiers.
Note that all of those geothermal areas lie in developing Regions of growing Economies.
So, Geothermal Energy could really be for those Countries the right answer to a common demand of a true, permanent and sustainable (economically and ecologically) development.
We think that the winning strategy, also for a durable social acceptance, is networking with existing and growing infrastructures...
