The 5th UK Deep Geothermal Symposium will be held in London/ England, October 25, 2016.

The 5th UK Deep Geothermal Symposium will be held in London/ UK, October 25, 2016. The event is held at the Geological Society (Burlington House) in partnership with British Geothermal, EGS Energy and Town Rock Energy.

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 will highlight both current opportunities and future potential.

There will be presentations on geothermal heat only and power generation schemes delivered by representatives from industry, government and academia.

There will also be time for networking during the break and at the post conference drinks reception.
