Geothermal Engineering Limited (GEL) has secured funding of £10.6 million from the European Regional Development Fund to explore the geothermal resources deep beneath Cornwall.

With £2.4 million from Cornwall Council and £5 million raised privately, the funding has allowed GEL to drill two deep geothermal wells from its site at United Downs, near Redruth. If circulation testing over the next few months proves successful, a 1-3MW power plant will be built at the site to demonstrate the technical and commercial viability of supplying both electricity and heat.
