Clean Energy Australasia (CEA) plans to generate base load electricity utilising Hot Rocks and Hot Sedimentary Aquifer hydrothermal / geothermal energy resources. CEA also is actively engaged in the integration of base-load geothermal energy and peak-load solar thermal energy.
CEA has secured 28 tenements over premier Geothermal and Solar Energy resources in the Great Artesian Basin in Queensland and South Australia, with potential to generate significant commercial electricity.
CEA has secured 21 tenements in the Cooper/Eromanga Basin - total area ~10,500 km2. The Cooper Basin has been identified as a world class hot rock geothermal province.
Thick sediments of the Great Artesian Basin (GAB) and Cooper Basin insulate the hot rocks heat source. The hot rocks are relatively close to the surface and are accessible with proven drilling technology.
Over a thousand petroleum wells provide a wealth of geoscientific information that is available to CEA.
CEA has secured 7 tenements in the Great Artesian Basin - total area ~4,500 km2; 3 granted and 4 in process.
The tenements overlie hot granites. Local water bores are known to produce near boiling water at a depth of just over 1km
