Dutch Geothermal energy company Yeager Energy recently agreed to a significant investment from Kerogen Capital. The aim of the agreement is to support the development of Yeager’s geothermal energy and district heating business in Europe.
Yeager Energy’s plans to develop a portfolio of geothermal energy projects and district heating networks to benefit the energy sector. The strategy will be focused on the built environment and the greenhouse horticulture sector and aims to create a safe and responsible source of sustainable heat.
Yeager’s business model is a comprehensive heat value chain, which involves complete ‘Source-to-Sale’ management from Yeager. The company will operate with a portfolio approach, pursue all areas of opportunity, and develop many working relationships. Sustainability is a driving force in the development of this strategy, and Yeager wants to maintain the safety and wellbeing of those involved and is conscious of environmental impacts.
