Abstract/Summary

The UK does not have the geothermal resources that are found in volcanic regions. This, coupled with the abundance of offshore gas from the 1980s led to very little exploitation, or interest in UK geothermal. However, times have changed and there is now an increasing requirement to utilise these renewable energy resources. Temperature increases with depth and even in the UK these can reach levels suitable for power generation and as a direct source of renewable heat.
