Mine Water Geothermal Energy

Alexandra Sweeney, PhD student, Department of Earth Sciences, Durham University

 

A quarter of the UK’s population live above disused underground mines. What used to be just a nuisance is now turning into an important resource for low carbon heating of homes and businesses. This talk will explain how mine water geothermal systems work and feature the latest results from a study of how dense the schemes could be made before they interfere with each other.
