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.

Well tests provide us with essential information about the temperature and permeability of the rock in our target zone, and how water moves through the hot granite deep underground. The results …
