Newcastle in hot water search..

Is Geothermal Power going to make any impact at all? What about Heat Pumps?

Newcastle in hot water search..

Post by raspberry-blower »

From Auntie Beeb
Engineers have started drilling a hole deep below Newcastle in the search for a renewable energy source.

The Newcastle and Durham Universities team plans to sink a hole 2,000m (6,562ft) below the planned Science Central site, in the city centre.

Scientists hope the £900,000 project will result in water at a temperature of about 80C (176F) being pumped out.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools - Douglas Adams.
