Water meters that my current company makes include a 20 year battery. Since you have no moving parts, seems similar.
A quick search shows a few places that make the batteries: https://www.startpage.com/do/dsearch?query=20+year+battery&cat=web&pl=opensearch&language=english
You could try contacting one of the manufacturers. Considering the purpose for the project and a one off role, They might provide one in turn for including a logo or some promotion on the project. One of the links included a UK url (www.tadiranbatteries.co.uk ) which I think may be near where you are located.
