Alison Thompson, in her role as director of the industry association, CANGEA, appeared alongside NDP Premier Rachel Notley to share her excitement for the proposed Bill 36: Geothermal Resource Development Act.
The progress we’ve made in developing geothermal resources would not be possible without the oil & gas and mining industries having first spearheaded essential technologies that helped expand our understanding of subsurface geothermal reservoirs.
Progressing geothermal in Alberta and Canada is a valuable employment opportunity to transition highly-skilled out of work Albertans and into clean energy. Moving from a carbon heavy economy towards a more sustainable future is socially and economically beneficial to Albertans.
