Icarus strives to develop the world's most advanced, proactively adaptive and genuinely sustainable source of energy.
“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.”

Geothermal has been around since the early 1900’s and accounts for over 15 Gigawatts of power. This represents < 0.05% of the world’s power.
- Reservoirs of hot water, existing at varying temperatures and depths below the Earth’s surface, are accessed through drilled wellbores.
- The hot fluid is recovered at surface and sent through a turbine before it is pumped back into the geothermal reservoir to be reheated.
Toxic fluids containing many chemicals like sulfur dioxide, arsenic, and other pollutants are pumped to the surface.
Underground water aquifers can quickly become depleted without an adequate understanding of the reservoir.
Very few locations contain the perfect recipe of temperature, rock properties, reservoir depth, and natural fluid.
Corrosion, scaling, and erosion due to the fluid physically touching the rock mean there are many costly unknowns.
High upfront costs for reservoir evaluation and drilling, paired with high levels of risk and continual maintenance create tight margins.
Continued maintenance practices, such as hydraulic fracturing, have been linked to earthquakes.
A New Geothermal
Icarus’ patented system has been specifically engineered to address each problem associated with conventional geothermal systems.
Investors of Tomorrow
Icarus is in the early stages of development, and looking for like minded individuals to work with us in developing our game changing, patent-pending, technology. Together, we can make Geothermal the truly sustainable solution for generations to come.
