- despatchable and 95% available;

The Eden Deep Geothermal Plant
Penzance-based EGS Energy and The Eden Project announced their partnership in June 2009 to establish what would be the UK’s first deep geothermal power plant.
In December 2010, planning permission was granted for the Eden Deep Geothermal Plant development, based on the application presented to Cornwall Council. See here for the press release.
