Our Story

TownRock Energy is Scotland’s first deep geothermal energy company. Our mission is to access the abundant geothermal energy of the deep geology, to provide zero-carbon, 24 hour renewable heat to industrial, commercial and domestic energy users in Scotland and in the wider global market.

Our focus is to develop economically viable geothermal systems in buried Hot Sedimentary Aquifers and shallower disused mines to boost the Scottish economy and reduce the national fuel poverty.

Our process applies hydrocarbon exploration techniques to evaluate deep geothermal resources. We are currently evaluating the Hot Sedimentary Aquifers in the Midland Valley of Scotland and further afield. We are also establishing a geothermal specific laboratory which will be used to create a thermal conductivity database for Scotland. These processes and laboratory tools have global application.

We are happy to discuss the vast potential of deep geothermal energy – and how it can be accessed – with any forward thinking companies, organizations and individuals that share our passion for a sustainable and environmentally friendly energy future.
