We have recently published an article on Scottish Energy News to bring some deeper insight to the fracking debate, and fend off suggestions that the Scottish Government's moratorium on fracking is a major hindrance to the development of Scotland's deep geothermal resources. We do not think it is. Shale gas and geothermal are not to be confused! http://www.scottishenergynews.com/how-hydraulic-stimulation-for-geo-thermal-energy-is-different-from-fracking-for-shale-gas/
