DEI Briefing note - The UK Geothermal Resource: Addressing the myths, identifying the challenges and exploiting the opportunities.

Eastgate Borehole

Geothermal energy promises to be part of the future energy mix in the UK: a carbon-neutral, home-sourced, sustainable and reliable source of heat and power which can help UK become more self-sufficient and resilient with respect to energy. However it is often omitted from conversations about de-carbonisation and security of our future energy supplies.

The briefing reviews the potential for using Geothermal energy in the UK, looks at how this resource has been exploited in other countries and what needs to be done in the UK to ensure we benefit fully from this carbon-neutral source of heat and power.
