What's an "energy pile"? Nuclear reactor perhaps?

I’m intrigued by what actually changed on May 10th, thr date it ‘opened’.

AFAICT there are still large areas fenced off for construction work; test
trains have been running in and out regularly for several months and
continue to do so; in the last few weeks (before it ‘opened’) I counted
seven sets stabled there; and the signalling alterations to allow use of
the wash plant and more than one line on/off have just been put back
(probably only slightly, and this is not an unusual occurrence).

So what actually happened on May 10th? Somebody cut a ribbon?

Not if they followed the plans. They were only supposed to stick
geothermal loops in the construction piles (as well as in umpteen
boreholes) for heating/cooling.

I have no idea if "energy piles" are good value for money or a gimmick.

Now I have visions of Michael Caine beside a nuclear accident, shouting
"You're only supposed to stick the bloody loops in".

I know little things please little minds, but I'm glad someone got it
