Save the Date. Rescuing Europe from energy dependency: the role of renewables

22-23 September 2014
Brussels, Belgium

This free, one-and-a-half day event will cover all aspects of Geothermal District Heating in Europe, and discuss the role of renewables for district heating in security of supply.

Three sessions will cover

  1. Policy: the EU’s energy security strategy and the 2030 climate and energy package
  2. From the GeoDH project: Potential, financing, and legislation for Geothermal District heating
  3. GeoDH: Technology. This session will cover the technological developments and will be held in collaboration with a geothermal panel meeting, covering the Horizon 2020 in 2015 work programme.

Full agenda and location to follow.

Two more EGS projects receive funding under the 2nd NER 300 call

The two projects are:

Croatia – Geothermae
The project concerns the production of electricity and heat from a geothermal aquifer and its associated natural gas. The project, in Draskovec, close to the city of Prelog in Croatia, will generate 3.1 MWe from geothermal hot brine using an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC).

France – GEOSTRAS
The French-German cross border project aims to produce electricity and heat from a high temperature geothermal resource near Strasbourg. It involves creating a circulation loop several kilometres long at a depth of between 4 km and 5 km that will function as a semi-open underground heat exchanger. The proposed geothermal plant is expected to produce 6.7 MWe electricity and 34.7 MWth heat.
More information is available here.
