Consul General Takahiko Watabe's Visit to Eavor Technologies Inc., a Geothermal Technology Development Company: May 25, 2023
On May 25, Consul General Takahiko Watabe visited the headquarters of geothermal technology developer Eavor Technologies Inc.
The "closed-loop geothermal technology" being researched and developed by Eavor is different from conventional methods in that it involves drilling a network of loops connecting the surface to several thousand meters underground, and extracting heat from the underground by circulating water as a heat medium in the loops. This new technology creates the potential to becoming a breakthrough in achieving net-zero emissions, the meeting also resulted in a fruitful exchange of views on the future utilization of the new technology, its prospects, and cooperation with Japan.
