Geothermal Energy

Geothermal energy could be the “invisible key” to unlock new energy sources and help meet net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, according to Queen’s University Belfast researchers.

Professor Mark Palmer and Joseph Ireland from Queen’s University Belfast have been working on a new landmark report for the Department for the Economy and the Northern Ireland Geothermal Advisory Committee.

The report, “Net Zero Pathways: Building the Geothermal Energy Sector in Northern Ireland”, highlights that
building the geothermal energy sector can help transition Northern Ireland towards a low-carbon future and create an emerging market.

Future geothermal energy use is considered key in decarbonising Northern Ireland’s heat sector as it is a clean and naturally occurring source of energy. It uses the natural subsurface as a source of heat and has the potential to provide cooling and seasonal storage of energy.

Launched as part of Northern Ireland Geothermal
Energy Week, the Queen’s University report offers
detailed recommendations for the way forward and f
ocuses on the confidence-building actions needed to
unlock the opportunities for energy from geothermal
heating and cooling.
