Barbara Harrison, Vice President, Offsets and Emerging, at Chevron New Energies
It is time for the geothermal industry to take its place as an obvious part of the energy mix. Geothermal should be the new normal, becoming as standard to the energy mix as goretex is for outdoor clothes. Right now, everything is in the industry’s favor to move from niche to mainstream. We have no time to waste and no excuse for not picking up the pace here and now. Together with Chevron we believe that the transition to a greener planet, with the help of geothermal, is going to be much faster.
Alexander Helling, CEO at Baseload Capital
This project is a great start and demonstrates the tremendous potential for similar installations and cooperation. The results will boost renewable electricity production in the future. Collaboration is definitely the way forward to transform the energy sector.
Alexander Helling, CEO Baseload Capital
We are proud to work together with Baseload Capital and Chevron, converting unused energy into clean and affordable electricity. A special thanks go to Baseload Capital, an expert partner in geothermal applications. This project is just the start of novel geothermal energy conversion in the oil and gas sector. There are many active oil and gas wells in the United States suitable for excess heat recovery, making it an untapped clean energy resource with significant potential that we shall quickly make use of.
Andreas Sichert, CEO Orcan Energy
The Earth's heat can deliver renewable energy 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. So, it is no wonder more and more large investors see the potential in what we do. We are happy that our partners are supporting us as we continue our fast-paced growth.
Alexander Helling, CEO Baseload Capital
Geothermal energy is an ideal source of stable, renewable base energy that complements solar and wind. It will be a crucial piece of the puzzle when the world needs to rapidly switch to a sustainable energy supply.
Magnus Brandberg, Chairman of the Board Baseload Capital and co-founder of Gullspång Invest
The key to reaching net-zero emissions is innovation in new, sustainable energy production methods. We are proud to work with Baseload Capital as they bring geothermal energy production to new parts of the world.
Carmichael Roberts, Breakthrough Energy Ventures

Climeon is a proud supplier to the Sansui Geothermal Power Plant in Waita, Kumamoto. This marks our 4th HeatPower system in operation on the Japanese geothermal market.
Veronica Wänman, Head of Geothermal & Business Development at Climeon
We are proud to add a second operation to Sansui Geothermal Power Plant in Waita, Kumamoto. This represents another step towards our vision of a planet in balance.
Pernilla Wihlborg, COO of Baseload Capital
The fact that both operations share the same well did pose some technical challenges, such as ensuring stable power generation. Those technical difficulties have been overcome and this renewable resource is now being used to its full potential.
Ryuta Hiratsuka, Representative Director of Baseload Power Japan KK
The Japanese government has committed to carbon neutrality by 2050 and expanding the use of renewable energy is critical to achieving that goal. Geothermal power generation, which can be sourced and consumed locally, will become an important part of the country's energy mix.
Ryuta Hiratsuka, Representative Director of Baseload Power Japan KK
Geothermal energy can help invigorate local areas. As a local company with strong roots in the region, we have a stake in building an ecosystem that promotes the increased use of renewable energy and creates more prosperous and sustainable communities.
Kazuyuki Akaishi, CEO of Furusato Power generation Co., Ltd.
We are thrilled to open our third power plant here in Kumamoto. Japan has over 20,000 hot spring facilities, presenting us with exciting opportunities to tap into the country's abundant geothermal resources.
Alexander Helling, CEO of Baseload Capital
It is great to see that our technology and products provide the key to tap another huge field of unused energy, in this case geothermal heat in the oil and gas extraction process. This project will contribute to an affordable and secure energy transition towards a net-zero future.
Andreas Sichert, CEO of Orcan Energy
The world cannot yet live without oil, but by taking advantage of an existing but untapped energy source, we can reduce its CO2 footprint. If the project is as successful as we anticipate, it will be the first of many successful joint projects.
Alexander Helling, CEO of Baseload Capital
We were so excited to be a featured speaker during CERAWeek because it’s really a ‘who’s who’ of global energy markets. Since we were amongst so many industry leaders, we really wanted to capitalize by recording these episodes of The Switch while at CERAWeek.
Alexander Helling, CEO of Baseload Capital
Through these interviews and our entire week at CERAWeek, it is clear that the global energy market is not black and white. It’s not clean energy versus ‘big oil and gas. There is a lot of grey area, and to move forward towards green energies we all need to cooperate on all levels. The Switch podcast is one way to find common ground between industries
Kristina Hagström Ilievska, CMO of Baseload Capital
We are very excited to launch this series and really drive the conversation about geothermal energy. At Baseload we feel like the industry really just needs more continual exposure in order to really grow. So, rather than having one seminar or summit per year, with Coffee with Baseload we aim to keep the conversation going.
Kristina Hagström Ilievska, CMO of Baseload Capital
“The Switch is going to be more than a podcast. We’re creating a fast-paced, broad, and entertaining show with a wide range of guests. Our goal is to make The Switch the number one hub for knowledge exchange on the topic of renewables and clean transition.”
Kristina Hagström Ilievska, CMO Baseload Capital
“We want to tear down the silos and makes sure we have conversations that lead us forward collaboratively”

In August, we announced that we were looking for a new strategic investor to help us accelerate deployment in our key markets,” says Baseload Capital CEO Alexander Helling. “We couldn’t have asked for a better one. Chevron complements our group of owners, and adds expertise in drilling, engineering, exploration and more. These assets will accelerate our ability to deploy heat power, and strengthen our way of working.
Alexander Helling CEO of Baseload Capital
Chevron’s investments in geothermal power reflects our ongoing efforts to help advance the world’s transition to a lower carbon future,” said Barbara Burger, vice president, innovation and president of technology ventures at Chevron. “We look forward to working with Baseload Capital to expand geothermal resources in the U.S. and internationally.

We want to be a catalyst for renewable energy by developing and financing the production of electricity from existing heat sources. Our goal is to create resilient societies and a planet in balance
Alexander Helling, CEO of Baseload Capital
Although the pandemic forced us to think of new ways to showcase our projects, we plan to maintain this course after the pandemic is over. Using VR, investors will eventually be able to tour all our power plants from Iceland to Asia, in one hour, with no carbon emissions. It’s the perfect way for us to be innovative, get the message out about our capabilities, and reduce our carbon footprint - all at the same time.
Alexander Helling, CEO Baseload Capital
I believe that we will look back and see 2020 as the year that accelerated geothermal. The global pandemic has shown us that we can make a difference in CO2 levels by changing how we consume energy. For the Baseload Team, this has only fueled our dream of a planet in balance and the urgency of rolling out affordable, renewable baseload energy. However, to be successful, we must find new partners to learn from and collaborate with. A virtual seminar is the perfect way to do this.
Alexander Helling, CEO, Baseload Capital
We first got the idea when we were driving around Japan and started noticing signs for closed onsens. We started asking onsen owners if they might be interested in making money by creating power from their hot water and in parallel, we established our local subsidiary.
Pernilla Wihlborg, Baseload Capital COO
For business owners, it is a relief to have income from two different sources. Now, when the tourist business is down, I will still have money coming in from the power being generated from the Climeon heat power plant
