Event details:

The development of geothermal energy to provide sustainable baseload heat and power at different scales is moving at an unprecedented pace. Many new projects are in development, and funding levels are increasing for both companies and projects. 

The 11th UK Geothermal Conference aims to highlight the technical and scientific advances being made across the spectrum of geothermal exploration and development. 

Whether you are involved in exploration, development, policy or regulation, this symposium is for you. Broad themes may include, but are not limited to:

  • shallow geothermal and heat pumps; 
  • minewater heat; 
  • subsurface geological studies; 
  • heat and power from granites; and 
  • case studies from the UK and abroad. 

Additional areas of research, such as the development of innovative technologies and solutions, mineral extraction from geothermal waters, and the potential environmental impacts of geothermal energy, are also welcomed. 

It remains an exciting time for the geothermal industry in the UK and this three-day symposium aims to showcase all aspects of research and development in this emerging industry.


Join us on the third day of the conference for a series of workshops and classes, where industry experts will delve into some of the most pressing hurdles facing the geothermal sector today. These engaging sessions will explore challenges such as high initial costs, regulatory barriers, and the complexities of drilling. Attendees will gain valuable insights into innovative solutions and strategies to overcome these obstacles, paving the way for the future growth and sustainability of geothermal energy. Don't miss this opportunity to network with professionals and deepen your understanding of the industry's critical issues.

More information available in due course.
