Cluff Geothermal’s North East projects in the spotlight

17 December 2014

On 17 December the Journal, the respected Newcastle-based newspaper, ran an article focussing on Cluff Geothermal’s projects in the North East of England.

Based around an interview with Dr. Michael Feliks, Cluff Geothermal’s UK Operations Manager, the article highlighted the advantages of deep geothermal energy and explained why the North East is an ideal location to develop the technology.   

As Dr Feliks said: “The future is looking very bright for geothermal energy, especially in the North East….where the geology is as good as you will find in the UK.” 

Cluff Geothermal welcome the article, which will raise the profile of our direct heat project at Shiremoor, North Tyneside.  We are at an advanced stage of negotiation with potential heat customers, and look forward to pushing ahead with this exciting and cutting edge green energy project in 2015.  

The article also focussed on the flagship deep geothermal project at Bishop Auckland, where Cluff Geothermal are advising the Auckland Castle Trust on a direct heat system exploiting the permeability and heat present at depth in the Butterknowle Fault.     

George Percy, Cluff Geothermal’s Managing Director said "We are delighted that this article brings the good news about deep geothermal energy to a wider audience in the North East.  We are looking forward to a breakthrough year in 2015 for our technology in the UK, with Cluff Geothermal at the forefront."
