Come to our community engagement event to find out more about an exciting energy research investment in Clyde Gateway.

Disused coal mines under Glasgow are now naturally flooded with warm water. One day it may be possible to use that water for geothermal energy, providing low-cost and low-carbon heating for homes and businesses above former coal mining areas.

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the British Geological Survey (BGS) are two of the UK’s leading scientific organisations. We want to invest £9 million in creating an underground observatory in Clyde Gateway so scientists can explore and understand geothermal energy.

It would involve us drilling a number of boreholes of various depths, and monitoring and assessing the findings over the coming years. This would be a world-class research site attracting leading scientists and engineers, building on Glasgow's history as a trailblazing city of science.

We are very keen to hear what you think. Our scientists will be there to chat about our work, explain more about geothermal energy, and what this investment could mean for your community. And, of course, they are there to answer any questions you may have.
