Understanding geothermal power
Geothermal energy is the heat in the rock beneath our feet – we’re planning to use it at Eden. Explore our infographic to find out why geothermal has such potential as a renewable energy source.
Geothermal is hot
Geothermal energy is the heat in the rock beneath our feet. By tapping into it, we can harness this power for electricity and heat.
In partnership with EGS Energy, the Eden Project has planning permission for a 4MW plant at the north end of our site. On a site the size of a football pitch, it will produce enough power for Eden and around 4000 houses, plus all the heat we can use, and more.
