Grenada has all the attributes necessary for the existence of commercial quality geothermal systems. Reservoirs may be within fractures in the central part of the island where the volcanic is thick enough reach depths of several thousand feet. Plausibly, the underlying carbonate formations may be involved in the northern part the island, particularly beneath Cantle Hill and Chambord.

Pre-feasibility studies were conducted between 1992 and March 1993. Resource assessment included literature reviews. air photo evaluations, on-site geology and acquisition of new data for hydrogeochemistry.

Additionally, interviews with key of the Grenadan public and private yielded insight how geothermal development could have proceeded in this island environment.
