The UK Geoenergy Observatory in Glasgow can be used to explore the use of low-temperature geothermal energy using flooded, abandoned mine workings. The observatory enables experimental investigation of heat and fluid flow in mine water systems using boreholes, advanced monitoring and sensors, and a flexible geothermal infrastructure for heating, cooling and thermal storage. There is a global opportunity for mine water geothermal to support the net zero agenda on the decarbonisation of heat.

On 26 and 27 April 2023, the BGS team at the observatory will be running four half-day sessions; each session will offer a comprehensive tour of the Glasgow Observatory and an opportunity for you to network and meet members of the project team and technical experts. Refreshments will also be provided.

These open events are aimed at earth scientists, sensor developers, heat engineers and commercial enterprises that are seeking opportunities to use the facility. Further information, including open access data, reports and updates on observatory development are available on the UK Geoenergy Observatories website.

Due to limited capacity, we reserve the right to restrict number of places allocated to each organisation to ensure as wide a representation as possible. Spaces are limited so booking is essential.
