Sir Tim Smit, co-founder of The Eden Project has long held the dream that we could tap into the resources beneath our feet to generate power that is available 24/7. Here Sir Tim talks about geothermal energy at The Eden Project.
The announcement of Eden Geothermal’s project has generated articles locally, nationally and internationally. Here are links to articles from BBC, The Guardian and Daily Mail: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-50035453 https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/oct/14/eden-project-drilling-clean-geothermal-energy https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-7571129/Eden-Project-ahead-17m-geothermal-energy-revolution.html
Funding has finally been secured to drill the first well for our pioneering geothermal heat and power project.
After a ten-year campaign the £16.8 million in funding will enable us to start drilling on Eden’s site next summer.
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.
