We’re proud to announce that the Leyton Group was able to help secure a groundbreaking €91.6 million grant from the European Innovation Fund (EIF) for Eavor Technologies Inc.

This significant investment serves as a testament to Eavor’s commitment to revolutionizing clean energy with its cutting-edge Eavor-Loop™ technology. The project, located in Bavaria near Geretsried, Germany, is set to redefine the landscape of geothermal energy and foster sustainability on a global scale.

About Eavor’s project:

Eavor-Loop™, the focal point of the Eavor-Europe™ geothermal project, stands as the world’s first commercial implementation of a closed-loop geothermal system. This innovative technology showcases the prowess of zero-emissions heat and power production, positioning itself as a beacon for global energy security and autonomy. The project started in June 2021 and the first significant phase was completed by October 2022, marking a pivotal moment in the advancement of geothermal energy.

The Eavor-Loop™ project is poised to deliver a clean baseload energy solution, contributing to the avoidance of approximately 44,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually. With the capacity to power around 20,000 homes, the project also promises to generate up to 600 person-years of employment in drilling services, power plant construction, and infrastructure development during the construction phase.

About Eavor Technologies:

Eavor Technologies Inc. is a technology-based energy company founded in 2017 in Alberta, Canada. Eavor’s ambitious project is currently leading the charge in creating a clean, reliable, and affordable energy future worldwide. Eavor’s groundbreaking Eavor-Loop™ technology eliminates barriers to geothermal energy by utilizing a closed-loop system that collects heat from the Earth’s natural geothermal gradient via conduction. This innovative approach ensures a sustainable and scalable source of clean, dispatchable, and flexible power.

John Redfern, President, CEO, and Co-Founder at Eavor Technologies Inc., expressed his gratitude to the European Commission, stating, “We at Eavor are humbled to be included in the EIF program alongside so many prestigious European multinationals.” Redfern envisions Eavor-Loop™ as the catalyst for the widespread adoption of scalable green baseload energy, addressing Europe’s challenges of Climate Change and Energy Autonomy.
