New Industry Group Forms to Promote Texas Geothermal Energy

A friend alerted me to a new organization formed to promote geothermal energy, The Texas Geothermal Energy Alliance (TxGEA). TxGEA is an interdisciplinary group of entities engaged in geothermal resource exploration, drilling, construction and production, for producing electricity from geothermal resources. Membership includes: 

  • Baker Hughes
  • Blade Energy Partners
  • Causeway GT
  • CenterPoint Energy
  • Chevron
  • Eavor Technologies
  • Fervo Energy
  • GeothermEx (a Schlumberger company)
  • GreenFire Energy
  • GRID Opportunity Solutions
  • Halliburton
  • Hypersciences
  • Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA)
  • Nabors
  • NOV Wellbore Technologies
  • Petrolern
  • Quaise Energy
  • Quandary Geoscience
  • Repsol
  • Sage Geosystems
  • Turboden

Barry Smitherman, past chair of the Public Utility Commission of Texas and past member of the Texas Railroad Commission, is guiding formation of TxGEA. The Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation is funding a study that will inform TxGEA’s mission, “The Future of Geothermal in Texas“.
