Electerre's ambition is to become an operator of large-scale geothermal power plants by developing know-how and reference projects on French territory (in Auvergne more specifically) before developing projects abroad (notably in Africa).

The economic model of Electerre rests on two levers:

  • The development of short-term operational micro-plants

This model makes it possible to limit investments in the first phase of the project (boreholes from 100 to 300 meters). With a specific know-how and mastered, it is also easily duplicable (in view of rapid international development in particular).

  • Strategic partnerships to develop large-scale geothermal projects (deep-water drilling).      



Sustainable development is a development that aims to ensure economic efficiency, social justice and ecological sustainability through principles to be respected.

In the course of its projects, Electerre de France implements the three dimensions of sustainable development and the responsibilities arising from it:


  • To inform: to make known the geothermics, to explain our activity, to present the projects

  • Involving: fostering synergy between local actors

  • Protecting: understanding and respecting environments to better protect them


  • Incorporating: achieving exemplary architectural integration of facilities
  • Preserve: put in place methodologies and measurement tools to preserve the local ecosystem
  • Protecting: understanding and respecting environments to better protect them


  • Create: to participate in the economic dynamics in terms of activities and jobs
  • Developing: providing opportunities for heat outlets that enhance local economic sectors that consume energy / heat
  • Innovation: creating innovative and endogenous know-how
