Is the Lithium industry still showing an interest in UD?
Do we yet have an estimate for the UK-wide potential of Geothermal and is the idea to have lots of small installations i.e.per factory, per house, per street, per city?
Any specific future projects in Cornwall or the UK?
Thank you Lucy - how many wells are you planning to drill for this project? just one?
are the planners encouraging - allowing - development informed by principles of industrial ecology ??
do big oil extraction companies have geothermal departments? "We" are always wary of greenwashing...
what is the potential of heat at the project in cornwall?
How does the process of drilling for Geothermal differ from fracking ? Does it have the same problem of polluting water , eg Fracking Fluid additives , or return water contaminated with Uranium etc ?? Once running could the “Fluid “ leaking into the ground water ?
Was there radon gas associated with drilling granite?
Lucy - what is the business model for Geothermal? Could it be a profitable industry or can it only work with governmental grants?
When do you expect to have the project fully operating?
is one injector and one producer well enough to supply a full power plant in your project?
Do you know any negative impact of using this technology?
Do you have to drill through granite to reach the high temperature of 175 degC you need? It must be very difficult to drill through granite (and expensive)
uranium is only ? problem when its enriched for use in nuclear
Many thanks Lucy! 2 questions- 1. Did you take formation pressures in both wells, the injection and production wells? 2. Did you find berries while presenting the project to the society?
Cheers from Barcelona !
what might be the main negative envn impacts from geothermal that we'd need to be aware of?
ignore my Q - already answered now
How much MW can you get from your producer? I have seen geothermal wells in the US that can only power 1MW per well.
Where does the equipment you are using (drilling rig, production rig) come from - do we have a UK industry producing this sort of kit?
Why did you part company with Abundance Generation and their investors when you say its difficult getting funding?
can you please give us an idea of the cost of the drilling rig per day? roughly....
now that you have a succesfull drilling I saw that Thrive Renewable are investing 8.1mln USD in the project - will you use that for future growth?
you are correct - if you want to make the drilling and the technology cheaper you will need a lot of volume, i.e. a lot of wells and 'continuous' drilling. Is that possible?
Do the rocks go cold if you take out too much heat ?
Thanks Lucy, Madelaine, Tom & Peter - that was really interesting, I've learnt a lot!
A big thank you to Lucy!
Really interesting, many thanks!
thankyou so much, that was great
v. good presentation
Thank you to Lucy and the team.
very informative, thanks so much Lucy!!
And thanks GeoScience!
Thank you!!! it was very interesting and educative!!
Great to meet you and thanks. brilliant talk and fielding of questions
