Eden Project

Energy from the rock beneath
our feet

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 secured 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.

See below to find out more about who we are, what we do and how geothermal energy can help with our energy needs both now and into the future.

We’re hiring!

We currently have one exciting opportunity…

We are tendering for a Procurement Consultant to advise on procurement processes for the design and construction of our 4.5km deep geothermal well. Please visit our Work With Us page to find out more.
