Sustainability in Hot Water
Join us at the British Geological Society where Professor Michael Stephenson, with a number of his senior colleagues, has kindly agreed to offer us a detailed briefing about their work.
The middle of last month saw reporting of plans to use heat energy from groundwater beneath Glasgow to help Glasgow to meet government targets to ensure 11 per cent of heat demand is met from renewable sources by 2020. The British Geological Survey (BGS) is working with the City Council to look into the use of heat energy from minewaters, superficial deposits and bedrock aquifers beneath Glasgow to warm homes and public buildings. The investigations are part of a wider project which involves trial sites in a number of locations throughout the United Kingdom and raises a host of questions of interest to UKELA members about deployment, management and regulation.
Refreshments will be available from 10 am, and the event will be followed by a light buffet lunch.
