Hunter Valley Geothermal Power Project Heating Up

Hunter Valley Geothermal Energy’s (HVGE) recently granted geothermal exploration licence EL9591, covers the Hunter Geothermal Anomaly (HGA), which HVGE Executive Chair John Bishop describes as “possibly the best site in Australia for a geothermal power plant, with some of Australia’s highest temperature gradients, up to 70degC/km (more than twice global average); yet it remains largely unexplored.”

Importantly, the licence area also includes the Bayswater and (decommissioned) Liddell coal-fired power plants with their associated network of high voltage lines providing easy access to the grid with minimal additional construction required. In addition, the licence is situated within the Hunter-Central Coast Renewable Energy Zone, which means the project will be given priority for rapid completion.
