G2C aims to facilitate and demonstrate the use of legacy mine workings as recycled heat storage and transport networks providing at a regional scale managed sustainable low carbon, low cost, local, sustainable heat sources. Internationally legacy mining communities are often economically or environmentally disadvantaged, and through establishing how to make use of these systems to balance surface heat and cooling needs using the mine workings we will offer a way forwards for these communities to benefit from the current energy transition. 

The project seeks to move the technology to a TRL6, creating a demonstration field test site in Scotland with an injection and extraction borehole and monitoring. The consortia comprising international academics, and local regulatory authorities and SMEs, led by Town Rock Energy, will develop.
