In Geretsried, Germany, Eavor™ is writing the next chapter of the energy transition. The Eavor-Loop™ is a closed-loop geothermal system where a benign working fluid circulates in an industrial-sized, underground heat exchanger without the need for a pumping system.
The Eavor-Loop™ in Geretsried will supply the entire region with district heating and electricity within the next four years and has the potential to become a game-changer in energy supply.
"The treasure at Geretsried"
