5th UK Deep Geothermal Symposium
1. Geological Society Events, 2016 Year of Water
The Geological Society (Burlington House)
Development of the UK’s deep geothermal resource offers the potential to both generate secure and low carbon electricity and heat with the potential to significantly offset gas consumption currently associated with heat production.
Geothermal development aligns with current government support for heat networks and has been made more feasible following the recent legislation on underground access for shale gas and geothermal and with the opportunity for several projects in a range of geothermal settings to apply for EU funds.
With new projects developing single well geothermal technology, interest in exploiting ultra low grade heat from abandoned mines plus several feasibility studies for the assessment of additional geothermal resources in Scotland, this event highlighted both current opportunities and future potential. There were presentations on geothermal heat only and power generation schemes delivered by representatives from industry, government and academia.
