|Geothermal Energy Research & Development Co., Ltd. was established
in November 1975 under the auspices of the former Ministry of International
Trade and Industry (MITI). It began as a joint venture launched by geothermal
development-related private enterprises in Japan with the aim of in order
to promoting the research and development of geothermal energy as part
of in the Sunshine Program that MITI initiated began in 1974.
We have participated in the research and development of geothermal
technologies conducted through the Sunshine Program, and have strived
to introduce foreign cutting-edge geothermal technologies and to offer
consulting services and information. At the present time, we have
nearly reached the point where are also actively approaching application
of the our geothermal technologies we have developed can be applied
so far to other fields. Examples of them include oil, gas, methane
hydrate, metallic deposits, civil engineering, groundwater, protection
against earthquakes, under-sea crustal structure study, the geological
sequestration of carbon dioxide, and the underground disposal of a
high level of nuclear wastes.
With the recent trend in increasing human economic and social activityies,
global-warning and other environmental problems have become apparent.
Regarded as environment-friendly, clean, and renewable, the geothermal
energy is expected to develop still further. Therefore, we will make
our utmost efforts not only to contribute to the progress of the geothermal
development but also to expand our new consulting business. We thank
you very much for your support and assistance.
