Stuart Campbell (College Class of 2008)
I am currently involved in the exploration and development of low enthalpy geothermal resources in Southern Africa as a senior scientist and project manager. Recent technological advancements allow us to produce the cleanest form of renewable energy from fluids circulating in deep sedimentary basins and fault zones. As the only company in Africa, and one of only a handful in the world, we are pioneering local exploration and are set to start producing energy within the next few months from our flagship project in Zambia. Geothermal energy has the potential to completely replace the burning of fossil fuels for energy, and unlike solar or wind, it isn’t dependent on prevailing climatic conditions.
Having studied Science at Uplands taught me to question everything and think critically, and combined with our country’s energy generating problems, started me on a path to seek the renewable energy solutions we need. Current pupils or Old Uplanders: you are welcome to email me at email@example.com if you are considering studying earth sciences. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
