Geothermal Energy Boost
4:53pm 29th May 2012
Could Cornwall get millions of pounds to generate power from beneath the earth?
The Duchy is waiting to hear if it will get government help to set up geothermal energy plants.
Eden has already announced it wants to produce power using hot rock technology.
Tim Jackson is from one of the companies behind the technology: "They are more expensive but they are comparable with other options such as nuclear and the other big advantage they have over other renewables is they can provide base load generation so you are getting approximately three times as much energy out of them".
Engineer Paul White says, "During the summer months we should be able to use the geothermal one on its own. We anticipate about 2 MW of heat load, because obviously over the summer months the heat requirement is considerably less".
