The Coal Authority: mining water & heat resources from Britain’s abandoned coal mines

25th June 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Jeremy Crooks, Head of Innovation for The Coal Authority is leading a wide range of initiatives to harness the resources of abandoned coal mines across the country. The Authority manages more than 70 sites and has a legacy portfolio of over £2.3 bn, of which several million alone is being spent on mine water projects.

Join the discussion to hear about:

  • How The Coal Authority is ‘mining’ the water and the vast heat potential that exists within the deep mine workings.
  • Some of the district heating schemes using mine water heat energy that are being developed in the North East of England
  • The support network of supply chain companies that The Coal Authority needs to fulfil its obligations and enable these new initiatives to flourish.

A Q&A session will allow for discussion about the Authority operations and the skills, technologies that are required.


This session is free to members ( a maximum of 2 places per member company) with a charge of £50+VAT for non-members. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
