Geothermal heat pumps are helping clean up city buildings

Maria Gallucci of Canary Media reports on how geothermal heat pumps are being used to decarbonize city buildings.

The C3 Take
  • Bedrock Energy, a geothermal startup, recently completed drilling an innovative and space-efficient geothermal heating and cooling system under a parking lot in Austin, Texas, demonstrating its technology can work in dense urban areas.
  • Geothermal energy is seeing increased investment and policy support as a way to decarbonize buildings, with companies innovating to improve affordability and utilities offering incentives to spur adoption.
  • Traditionally a geographically constrained energy source, advancements in drilling techniques are making the future of geothermal bright.

“Startups within the fast-growing industry are developing next-generation solutions to produce ​“clean, firm” electricity in geographic locations that conventional geothermal technologies can’t access. Other companies like Bedrock are innovating on a relatively smaller scale to make it easier and more affordable to decarbonize homes and buildings.”
