Future Geothermal Power & Heat sites

Introduction

Cornwall is sat above an incredible geothermal resource and Geothermal Engineering Ltd (GEL) have been working hard to identify new sites that would allow us to tap into this resource for clean, renewable, 24/7 power generation.
GEL appreciates that the prospect of having a new renewable source of electricity and heat close to where you live, or work can be daunting. Below you will find information about geothermal power and heat production and the process that will be undertaken before a powerplant is installed. GEL has many years of experience in the renewable energy and drilling industry and will always be happy to answer questions.
