By Prof. Hui Tong Chua, FIEAust, FIChemE, Department of Chemical Engineering of UWA Luck is smiling on geothermal energy. Last November, I was invited to the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) Award Gala Dinner in Sydney. I was heartened to learn that geothermal energy was received favourably by the industry. For…
RENEWABLE ENERGY & HYDROGEN PRODUCTION | ZERO EMISSION DESALINATION & FRESH WATER
One cased well per production system
No impingement on groundwater
No fracking required
True Baseload Capability
Not reliant on wind, sunlight or batteries for sustained output
The lowest cost emission free desalination of sea water in the world
Good Water Energy is an Australian renewable energy and water company
based in Western Australia.
Good Water Energy has a mission to produce commercially sustainable, emission-free, renewable energy and desalinated seawater from sustainable geothermal heat resources.
We design and drill our own geothermal wells using tried and proven technology developed by the founder of Good Water Energy that protects the environment and significantly reduces
costs relative to oil and gas drilling methods and previous geothermal drilling in Australia.
We aim to provide viable renewable replacements large scale fossil fuel driven transport, processing, electricity generation and water desalination systems.
Our wells are designed to provide thermal heat energy for electricity, green hydrogen production and seawater desalination for prolonged timescales in excess of 50 years with zero emissions and no adverse impact on the environment.
Our goal is to create a scalable model that can be implemented across Australia, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels for energy as well as addressing Australia’s severe water shortages.
Vision, mission and values
- To be Australia’s leading renewable energy and water supplier; providing low cost, zero emission, sustainable green products to homes, businesses and industry for many generations to come.
- To replace fossil fuels with green hydrogen for transport, power generation, processing and household gas requirements.
- To deliver green hydrogen, electricity and desalinated fresh water as a vertically integrated service provider, directly to homes, highway service stations, businesses and industry as a retail provider.
- To become a global leader in renewable energy, green hydrogen, ammonia and water development, production and distribution within 10 years.
HOW WE DO IT.
Below: An illustrated schematic showing the capability of the patented GWE system to produce Zero Emission Hydrogen through the use of Geothermal Power and Seawater.
The schematic above demonstrates how we’re able to produce 100% green hydrogen using only geothermal heat and seawater.
The only by-products from this system (aside from electricity and hydrogen) are oxygen, fresh water and harvestable brine salts (from the ocean).
Our single well systems are cased and do not interefere with groundwater.
No fracking is required (as with other geothermal systems) and no potentially toxic geothermal brine is brought to the surface.
GWE has economically viable drilling technologies and state of the art process systems for the production of electricity, water,
hydrogen and ammonia using geothermal heat energy in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way.
Good Water Energy designs wells to provide thermal heat energy for electricity, green hydrogen production and seawater desalination for prolonged timescales in excess of 100 years without emissions and with no adverse impact on the environment.
We choose to collect salt brine generated from desalination where possible, to reduce salt brine returns into the ocean. In some regional areas, total brine volumes can be collected by total dry brine desalination systems or in solar evaporation ponds where sea salt and other minerals can be harvested.
