Geothermal Energy, Sustainabilty and Decarbonization in Agriculture
This is the first in a new series of sessions organised in collaboration with the Heat Academy. The aim is to increase the awareness of the opportunities in sourcing fully sustainable heat from the underground.
Time & Location
23 May, 15:00 – 16:00 BST
About the event
Soil and water below ground contain a vast reservoir of thermal energy. Geothermal heating systems recover this energy and convert it to heat that can be utilized in greenhouses and other buildings. The greenhouse sector is already taking steps toward using renewable energy, with several geothermal energy plants being developed in recent years. At this session we will highlight the opportunities in applying deep geothermal in the agricultural sector thereby avoiding costs and risks related to fossil fuels. You will learn more about the technologies and business models available to make this work, as well as strategies for bringing a project from objectives to operations.
