Environmental Impact Assessment of an innovative Geothermal Energy Project at Greengogue, Co. Dublin
In 2010 Dr. Charles Mount prepared the cultural heritage section of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for the first Geothermal Energy Plant in Ireland at Greenogue, Co. Dublin. The innovative renewable energy project involves a temporary surface drilling rig with temporary ancillary facilities to drill two subsurface wells at descending angles to a depth of 4,000m. Once the wells are completed a Geothermal Electricity Generation Plant with connection to the power grid will be constructed within an industrial unit. The project was granted planning permission by South Dublin County Council in 2011.
