is an Australian renewable electricity, water and salt generation company
with a difference.
Real solutions for Australia's water crisis
and for the elimination of CO2 emissions
We are focused on replacing fossil fuel generated electricity and tap water to Australian homes, businesses and Industries with lower cost geothermal generated electricity and desalinated seawater.
The company has drilling technology created in Western Austalia and developed in Europe that enables faster and very deep drilling at low cost. This tried and proven technology is now providing the ability to reach the required geothermal heat levels close to market, rather than in shallow volcanic sedimentary heat reservoirs that are generally a long way from markets for electricity and water.
Good Water Energy uses single well systems that do not require stimulation or fracking of the earth to create communication between wells or drilling into geothermal reservoirs, thereby totally eliminating the reason why large geothermal projects have not been successful in Australia over the past 15 years. There is also no extraction of any groundwater, including geothermal brine, and there is also no contaminated water injected back into shallower groundwater reservoirs, which is common with twin well geothermal systems, making Good Water Energy geothermal systems even more environmentally acceptable. Only heat is transferred to the surface, conveyed by clean fluid inside a closed loop, vertical heat exchanger, located in the geothermal reservoir. This provides for lower production pumping costs and for much longer well life.
Good Water Energy plans to install an initial 100 MW base-load electricity and water plant that will provide electricity and water to 120,000 homes, with expansion plans to establish geothermal power and water plants in every Australian State.
Large volumes of distilled fresh water will be generated from salty or ocean water using waste heat from our geothermal power generating turbines. Our desalination plants will also serve as a cooler for our power generation systems rather than using large amounts of electricity to run air cooling systems as most geothermal power plants do. This integrated system therefore lowers our cost of both electricity generation and water desalination.
Good Water Energy intends to divert 500,000 litres of the distilled water to our water packaging plant. The water will be packaged in environmentally friendly cartons and sold to the Australian retail market at a very competitive price. Expansion of the water packaging plant will produce more than 5 ML/d with market acceptance.
Due to the availably of waste heat from our geothermal power generating systems and large volumes of managed salt brine from our desalination processes, high quality sea salt and other minerals such as lithium, potassium, potash and magnesium can be extracted from salt brine. Other possibilities for waste heat include air-conditioning, heating greenhouses or agriculture product drying.
Our goal is to create a scalable model that can be implemented across Australia, reducing our dependence on fossil fuels for energy as well as addressing Australia’s severe water shortages.

The Water Crisis
Australia is one of the Earths driest inhabited continents and most cities in Australia are classified as being the driest cities in the world.
Due to chronic water shortages, water restrictions have been in place for many years in the cities and regional areas.
Droughts restrict allocated water for irrigated agriculture.
Fresh groundwater reservoirs are being depleted and desperately need re-injection programs using clean, uncontaminated fresh water.
Coal powered, very expensive electric desalination plants are being installed in an attempt to reduce water shortages but they are adding to CO2 emissions and increasing the cost of water to homes.
Good Water Energy’s zero emission geothermal power and desalination plants will distribute renewable electricity and water through existing networks directly to your home, business or Industry.
Our clean zero emission distilled water can be distributed to dams and depleted groundwater reservoirs prior to being supplied to our customers, thereby preventing the depletion of our valuable groundwater reserves.
