Two attendees at the PESGB Young Professionals event at DEVEX17 – where our MD David Townsend provided an alternative view for skilled oil industry employees and graduates looking for a career which utilises their expertise – have written blogs which can be viewed here. www.pesgb.org.uk/news/review-devex-yp-event-i-get-knocked-i-get/
According to a new book titled Drawdown – which ranks the top 100 solutions to global warming – Geothermal Energy is in the top 20. Fantastic news and encouragement to the industry! We have bought a copy for the office and encourage anyone looking for a career change to get…
Three of our project feasibility studies have been condensed into non-technical summaries, so if like most people you do not have time to wade through a 100+ page technical report, click here! http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0052/00520777.pdf
Incredible day at EIE17 investment conference yesterday. Our MD David pitched for hundred of investors to very positive feedback, and won dinner with Rob Jones of FanDuel, one of Edinburgh’s two unicorns (a startup company valued at over $1 billion).
Today we attended DEVEX17 – the only UK oil industry conference focussed on geology. Steve Cuddy – our Petrophysics Associate – was presenting his fascinating work on fractals. David Townsend – our Managing Director – spoke at the Young Professionals event about the opportunities in transitioning to the geothermal sector.
This bodes well for progressing the Scottish geothermal industry – let’s hope the research is focused on impact! http://www.nerc.ac.uk/press/releases/2017/08-energy/
Read about this article about why geothermal energy is still important in a world of ever cheapening solar energy. Is Geothermal competitive in the current market of low-cost renewables?
A fascinating project in Germany using a flooded coal mine for pumped hydro electricity storage.
