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 from private investors, the funding will allow GEL to drill two deep geothermal wells from its site within the United Downs Industrial Estate and build a 1MW - 3MW pilot power plant to demonstrate the technical and commercial viability of supplying both electricity and heat. 

( the first bore hole is now the deepest drilled inland in the UK)
