Introduction

About Us

 

 

We make our planet’s energy available for local needs.

Through cutting-edge technology, and working in balance with nature, we harness the Earth’s inner heat to deliver energy that is stable, local, and independent. We make use of our planet’s existing energy for truly local needs:

To heat
To power
To facilitate

We deliver complete heating systems through the use of the inexhaustible source of energy that is stored beneath our feet. We find future-oriented solutions that match our commitment to deliver our customers an everlasting source of clean energy.

 

 

 

Our solutions offer energy production that is independent and local, and which leads to significant cost reductions compared to infrastructure and distribution networks. Low operational costs and independence from variations in weather conditions and fuel costs make it easier to predict future energy costs. During operation, there are no emissions into the air, water or soil, and the plants operate 24/7 with an expected lifetime of 50+ years.

We heat sports arenas, parking facilities, sidewalks, industrial buildings, hospitals, office buildings, hotels, malls, and residential buildings. We also provide heating, cooling and power to airports, large industry, district heating systems, and combined heating and power (’CHP’) producers, and many more.

Our systems are modular and can be designed and expanded to meet the changing energy requirements of different energy users as they grow.

Context

 

Electricity is a high-quality form of energy, but it is still widely used to produce heat at low temperatures, including the heating of external surfaces in winter. In many cases, this heat could be replaced by the direct use of heat from deep inside the Earth: a local, renewable energy source that has minimal environmental impact.

No renewable energy solution can produce a stable output 24/7 and at predictable future energy costs – none, except deep energy wells. The challenges caused by climate change have led to increased demand for energy that is renewable and kind to the environment. The challenge with most renewable alternatives is their dependency on weather conditions and fuel prices, in addition to logistical challenges of transporting fuel and waste.

Until now, the issue with energy wells was that well depths of 200 – 400 meters required a lot of space for larger installations, especially in densely-populated areas where land costs are high, and shallow well depths saw temperatures that were too low for producing power.
We have come up with the answer to these challenges.

With our solutions the need for areal space is reduced to a bare minimum and we believe that our energy wells will be a leading application in the heating and combined heat and power market.

Net Trading Group aquires geothermal firm Rock Energy

 

19 March 2021

Enhanced LOI with Faroe Islands utility

Rock Energy has signed an enhanced letter of intent with a Faroe Islands based utility company to make a bid to offer energy to the growing Faroese market

Isolated in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroe Islands need to be self-sufficient in terms of electricity generation as the Faroese electrical grid is not interconnected to any neighbouring countries

The political goal is to replace around 230,000 MWh currently produced using heavy oil

The challenge in the Faroes is that solar is insignificant and wind cannot provide sufficient reliable energy to the grid.  The only base load source of significance is heavy fuel oil.  Rock Energy’s energy wells could decrease the dependence on heavy fuel oil for power in the Faroe Islands by providing renewable base load energy
