Alberta Energy accepts applications for geothermal leases, via the Electronic Transfer System (ETS), from companies interested in exploring for and developing geothermal resources. These applications are necessary for any stand-alone geothermal operations that would occur below the base of groundwater protection.
If you have any questions or need help with geothermal applications, please forward them to:
Energy.GeothermalTenure@gov.ab.ca. The Geothermal Resource Tenure Regulation can be accessed at the Geothermal Resource Development website at this location: https://www.alberta.ca/geothermal-resource-development.aspx.
