Commercial Manager – Mine Energy
The Coal Authority

Charlotte is the Commercial Manager for Mine Energy at The Coal Authority. She is a geologist/hydrogeologist by training her PhD (1999) focused on treating the polluted discharges flowing from historically abandoned lead-zinc mines. Latterly she worked on coal mine abandonment designing low-cost ways to treat mine water when it reaches the surface. Spending time above and below ground sparked her interest in the potential of using mine water for heat and she now works to promote the geothermal potential of abandoned mining infrastructure in the UK and beyond.
