GreenFire Energy Inc. Recognized for Advancing Geothermal Technology in the Philippines

GreenFire Energy Inc., a leading provider of geothermal energy solutions, has recently been honored with the prestigious Export Achievement Certificate (EAC) by the International Trade Administration (ITA). The certificate, presented at a special event organized by the U.S. Commercial Service (CS), acknowledges GreenFire Energy’s successful participation in a geothermal project in the Philippines, made possible through funding from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).

The ITA Export Achievement Certificate serves as recognition for American companies that have made significant inroads into new international markets or successfully expanded their sales of innovative products overseas. In collaboration with the CS, GreenFire Energy will now focus on developing an implementation strategy to deploy its advanced GreenLoop technology as part of the USTDA pilot project. This initiative will support the Energy Development Corporation, the largest renewable energy producer in the Philippines.

As Rod Hirsch, Director of the CS Oakland Office, explained, “By connecting GreenFire Energy with a key buyer in the Philippines, the U.S. Commercial Service played a crucial role in validating the practicality and economic viability of GreenFire Energy’s technology for harnessing geothermal resources, particularly in steam and two-phase applications.”

Joseph Scherer, CEO of GreenFire Energy, expressed his gratitude for the Export Achievement Certificate and acknowledged the support received from USTDA, the U.S. Commercial Service, and the U.S. Department of Commerce. Scherer highlighted the unique capabilities of GreenLoop technology, which optimizes underutilized geothermal assets and enables the expansion of geothermal power generation while ensuring the long-term sustainability of these resources.
