We are pioneering geothermal energy — clean, naturally occurring, sustainable energy from the rock deep underground.

Eden Geothermal Ltd has been set up by three partners: Eden Project, EGS Energy Ltd, and Bestec (UK) Ltd to unlock the geothermal energy deep in the granite beneath Cornwall. Eden Geothermal has funding of £9.9m from the European Regional Development Fund, alongside £1.4m from Cornwall Council and £5.5m from institutional investors to drill a 4.5km deep well at the Eden Project, and heat its famous Biomes, greenhouses and offices.

This is the first phase of a two well development. It will pave the way for the second phase: another 4.5km well and an electricity plant.

Find out here who we are, what we do and how geothermal can help with our energy needs both now and into the future.

Geology helping drilling ahead
We've passed another milestone on our journey to the centre of the earth beneath the Eden Project – on Monday we drilled past the 2000m MD mark! As of 6am today, we’ve drilled to 2293m MD. The higher ROP (rate of penetration) achieved recently is due to the geology we’ve encountered: we’ve been able …
