Geothermal Project
El Salvador

Geothermal energy is produced by the same phenomena that create hot springs.  Water, beneath the earths surface, is heated by the radiating heat of an active volcano which then, under pressure, finds its way to the surface.  The pressurised steam is used to power a turbine (which creates electricity) and as the steam cools back to water it is then injected back in to the subsoil where it can be reheated again.

Not only does this project produce clean energy it also supports the local environment through conservation projects.  With a specific focus on wildlife that is in danger of extinction, the project has built habitats, including protected forests, especially for the rehabilitation of endangered species.

Further social investments include training and education, social & environmental infrastructure, health & environment and community wellness.  The aim of all of this is to enhance and strengthen skills and capacities for self-sustainable development.

With a huge focus on community, this project supports a wide range of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.


Nearly seventy percent of Mozambique’s population live in rural areas. Located on the coast, this East African country is home to endangered and endemic animal species.

Historically home to vast mangrove systems and forests, Mozambique’s mangroves have been largely destroyed.

With over 45% of the population living below the poverty line, the people of Mozambique rely on its natural resources and forests.
