St. Johns Project Helps GreenFire Energy Propel Geothermal Energy Development

Friday, January 6th, 2012

GreenFire Energy is working in the Real AZ Corridor (St. Johns) to develop processes that will enable it to become the first company in the world to produce electric power at commercial scale using geothermally heated CO2.

The potential is enormous, given the capacity of Real AZ Corridor soils to store CO2 … and the availability of emissions from the Corridor’s expanding energy industry. CO2 is also a food source for algae, another high potential sector in the Corridor.

Geothermal is one of the renewable/alternative energy sectors that are emerging – quickly – in Navajo and Apache counties. There’s a lot to be excited about in the Real AZ Corridor … and geothermal energy production is part of that.

Visit GreenFire Energy’s website at www.greenfireenergy.com  to learn more. Here’s an excerpt:

‘Imagine a clean, renewable energy source that can greatly increase the amount of baseload power while having a positive impact on CO2 emissions and the environment. That energy source is CO2- based geothermal power. GreenFire Energy is working to develop and harness this power, creating a suite of geothermal technologies which we call CO2ETM.

We have combined an unrivaled, multidisciplinary R&D program with a viable, realistic business strategy. GreenFire is currently developing innovative and patentable technologies to accomplish this goal.

GreenFire’s Technology Approach is carefully measured, constantly focusing on the realistic challenges associated with scale-up to commercial production, rather than merely focusing on successful lab-scale technology itself.’

Asset Inventory Highlights Real AZ Corridor

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

An all-new, full-color Regional Asset Inventory for the Real AZ Corridor is now online. You can learn about Arizona’s Energy and Economic Development Corridor, in detail, HERE.

The document includes 2010 Census data, ESRI and Claritas site selection market estimates and information on key sectors for economic growth: Forestry, Mining, Energy, Biosciences and more. It is a ‘living document’ that will be updated regularly … and expanded as new data is released.

Also onboard: The latest information on economic development incentives offered by the Arizona Commerce Authority through Arizona’s new Competitiveness Package. You’ll find the Asset Inventory, all of this information and more on the Real AZ Corridor website at www.realazcorridor.com  .

 

The Real AZ Corridor is the Gateway to America’s Energy Future

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Arizona’s energy and economic development corridor is also the gateway to America’s renewable energy future.

And you can get there from here.

Few regions offer access to transportation assets and natural resources. The Real AZ Corridor offers Interstate access and frontage, a strong state highway network and a location that is within four hours of Phoenix and Albuquerque, within easy reach of the energy-hungry California and Nevada markets and less than eight hours from the Mexican border.

Commercial rail service via the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway connects the Real AZ Corridor with national markets. Passenger rail service serves the region, with an Amtrak station in Winslow.

Nine public airports serve the Real AZ Corridor, including daily commercial passenger service to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport from Show Low Regional Airport.

The Real AZ Corridor is a gateway that also serves the regional shopping needs of the adjoining Navajo, Hopi and White Mountain Apache Tribe Nations.
