Successful studies of geothermal potential of the Garibaldi Volcanic Belt in British Columbia’s Southwest Region are driving investment, including the development of low carbon intensity hydrogen production. In BC’s Northeast Region, Fort Nelson First Nation is developing its Tu Deh-Kah Geothermal project following significant research into geothermal potential at Clarke Lake.
BC’s Northwest Region hosts numerous volcanoes and hot springs, and therefore has potentially significant geothermal energy resources. Further study would help assess the geothermal resource potential of the region to guide development decisions by industry, communities, Indigenous groups, government and the regulator. Existing electrical infrastructure in the region is a benefit to any geothermal resource development.
