United Kingdom: Dr Charlotte Adams Wins Prestigious Medal for Ground Breaking Work in Ultra-Low Enthalpy Geothermal Energy

Dr Charlotte Adams wins Geological society medal (Durham University)

Dr Charlotte Adams
Dr Charlotte Adams, Durham Energy Institute fellow, has been awarded the prestigious Aberconway Medal by the Geological Society. This prestigious medal is awarded for excellence in applied geoscience and reflects Charlotte's ground breaking work in ultra-low enthalpy geothermal energy.

Heat can be extracted from the water flooded coal mines. The legacy of mines in the UK, their abundance and their distribution is such that most of the major population centres in the UK could have heat supplied from such mines allowing the UK to improve its energy security while simultaneously decarbonising heat. Translation of theory to practise is underway and Charlotte’s work in the area has made a significant contribution to this.

The award was presented at the Geological Society’s Presidents Day on 6th June.
