Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy is a renewable and clean form of energy that uses heat from beneath the Earth’s surface. Once harnessed, this energy can be used to generate electricity.

Through a prefeasibility study in 2018, QEC took the first steps in identifying potential geothermal resources in the territory. The final report suggests options for future studies in areas determined to have sufficient potential geothermal activity. QEC is seeking funding to move forward on future studies.
