Mission Statement

Deep River dedicates its considerable expertise to the development and discovery of new technologies, and to creating links between these technologies and existing technologies, to produce affordable alternative energy, with a focus on solar-thermal energy and geothermal energy.

  • With our Salinity Gradient Solar Ponds, Deep River seeks to recycle bulk industrial and municipal waste materials in a manner that is environmentally sound, in order: 1) to develop a source of alternative, fossil-fuel free energy that is economical and can provide baseline, 24x7, year-round power and peak demand storage; and 2) to create long-term, sustainable income, from recycling revenues and from power generation.

  • Deep River’s Deep Geothermal methodologies utilize drilling and completion techniques developed for the oil and gas industry to capture deep horizontal and geo-pressured domestic heat resources for carbon-free baseline power generation.

  • Value engineering, effective design practices and the diligence of Deep River’s innovators have led us to solutions that fulfill environmental standards and create reliable revenue streams for our investors and our partner companies.

Deep River’s integration of technologies to produce fulltime, renewable, fossil-fuel-free energy production and storage achieves societal and environmental benefit with sustained profitability. The systems Deep River has developed are exportable around the globe.

  • Tracy Wiest
  • Mr. Wiest’s oil industry career spans 27 years as a drilling operation superintendent or consultant. Held major company positions with BP Arco, Devon, St Mary’s Land & Exploration, Penn Virginia and assorted minor independent operators. His early experience in 1990’s with BP Arco started the optimization process called “Technical Limits Coordination” (TLC). This process radically reduces inefficiencies of all logistics that are inherent to the oil and gas industry. Mr. Wiest serves as Senior Vice President of Deep River Group Operations and CEO of Deep River Logistics.
