Geothermal UK: Share of the £1.4 billion Regional Growth Fund
posted by on Monday, February 07, 2011 - 05:41 AM

gfoat writes "Geothermal Engineering Ltd, the British company developing the UK’s first commercial-scale deep geothermal power plant, has bid for a share of the £1.4 billion Regional Growth Fund. The fund aims to stimulate enterprise by providing support for projects and programmes with significant potential for creating long term private sector led economic growth and employment. The company plans to develop up to 30 further plants in Devon and Cornwall with the capacity to meet half of Cornwall’s current electricity demand*. According to the Department of Energy and Climate Change, the deep geothermal resource of Cornwall alone could supply 10% of the National Grid’s baseload electricity demand**. In conjunction with the University of Exeter, a pioneering research centre into geothermal energy is also planned. "

gfoat writes "t-mac Technologies Ltd has joined forces with the Environmental Technology Centre (ETC) at the University of Nottingham to create a first by showcasing energy reducing technology via its interactive website. The ETC, which offers energy advice to businesses, is one of the first companies in the UK to incorporate a custom-made t-mac Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) dashboard to its website. The device will meter geothermal energy generated from their water-source heat pump room at its Demonstration Centre and will be available for everyone to see."

gfoat writes "Officials in New Hope-Solebury will install a geothermal heating and cooling system to reduce energy costs at a high school. The high school will move its baseball field after next season so the school district can sink more than 100 wells between second base and far right field. It has been reported that "Nobody's drilling for oil here!" For more see The Philadelphia Inquirer News."

Geothermal Le Moyne College dormitory gains geothermal heat
posted by on Friday, July 13, 2001 - 08:20 AM

gfoat writes "Last Tuesday afternoon a drilling crew started boring a hole "450 feet deep" near a residence hall for Jesuit priests on the campus of Le Moyne College. During the next coming weeks, the drilling rig will dig two dozen holes. The Jesuits priests are looking to cut their monthly energy bills by using geothermal heat in a new energy-efficient heating and air-conditioning system that will extract heat from the earth during winter and discharge heat into the earth in summer.

Geothermal Geothermal power in the US to expand over next 2 decades
posted by on Wednesday, January 31, 2001 - 08:49 PM

US Department of Energy Secretary, Bill Richardson, and Senator Harry Reid have introduced a program with the aim of increasing geothermal power production in the western United States. Bill Richardson said, "Geothermal power is a clean, reliable and renewable energy source available in all western states; in fact, it is already a significant supplier of electricity in California, with additional resources in Nevada, Utah, and Hawaii." The objective of the plan is to increase the use of geothermal power to 10% of the western states electricity needs. This program is just part of a broader DOE drive to increase the output of renewable energy to 25,000 MW by 2010. Harry Reid stated of the program, "Nevada is on the cutting edge of geothermal research and technology and today's announcement will help other western states to develop a clean, reliable and renewable source of energy for the new century."
