Clean Energy Australasia (CEA) is assessing opportunities for strategic partnerships with energy and power companies to explore and develop local geothermal power for remote and regional communities, mines and petroleum facilities in western Queensland and north-east South Australia.

CEA is also assessing opportunities for equity investment in and by CEA, including joint venture arrangements and acquisitions.

CEA Regional Market Opportunities

CEA's tenements are positioned to support remote energy markets where the present supply arrangements are under significant price stress. Consequently our main focus is towards:-

  • NW Qld - Mt Isa - Major Minerals Province
    • Gas fired power generation under significant price stress from LNG export competition
    • 500 MW local demand actual and latent (un-met)
  • Western QLD - Longreach / Barcaldine, Winton, Windorah and Jundah
    • Positioned on high quality geothermal prospects for local geothermal power by 1MW field development program pilots
    • Longreach market is perfect size for 5MW demonstration plant
    • Longreach near term growth potential is supported by existing 66KV transmission line to Barcaldine (25MW capacity)
    • Minor transmission reinforcement yields long-term growth potential into eastern Queensland and the National Electricity Market (NEM)
  • Cooper Basin
    • Oil and Gas Production - substitute power supply capability for Moomba plant and satellite facilities
    • Power for carbon dioxide re-injection - Moomba Carbon Storage
    • Near to medium term potential 25 - 250MW
    • Longer term large scale potential to National Electricity Market (NEM)
    • Large scale requires major investment in transmission network

The NEM map below distinguishes these market regions relative to CEA's tenements
