    Abstract

    This report has been prepared at the request of ClimateXChange for the Scottish Government Heat and Energy Efficiency Unit. It summarises the key findings of feasibility study reports from four projects carried out under the Geothermal Energy Challenge Fund, part of the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme (LCITP), which is supported by the 2014 – 2020 European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) programme. The projects were intended to explore the technical feasibility, economic viability and environmental sustainability of developing geothermal resources at sites in Fife, North Lanarkshire, Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire.The four projects and their reports are:• Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre Deep Geothermal Single Well Project; Feasibility Report for the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme.• Fortissat Community Minewater Geothermal Energy District Heating Network.• Geothermal Energy Challenge; Guardbridge Geothermal Technology Demonstrator Project.• Hill of Banchory Geothermal Energy Project; Feasibility Study.5
