The GEOTHERMICA consortium announced the launch of an additional Joint Call on June 3 with a deadline for pre-proposals on September 1, 2019.
The Second Call will build on the success of the previous one and incorporate valuable lessons learned during the last four years. Moreover, the GEOTHERMICA Consortium will be broadening for the Second Call, with Norway and USA joining, giving GEOTHERMICA now the weight to influence and accelerate the development of geothermal energy globally.
GEOTHERMICA’s second call objective is to accelerate the development of geothermal energy globally, by combining the financial resources and know-how of its respective partners, as well as expanding the utilization of clean and renewable low carbon geothermal energy beyond its traditional markets and regions. In addition, GEOTHERMICA seeks to explore the optimization of geothermal direct use and power generation, including innovative integrated and combined systems.
In the previous call, GEOTHERMICA financed, with the support of the European Commission, eight large Inter-European projects, allocating close to €30 million to innovation and technology development projects. The available budget for the Second Call is close to €20 million in total.
Electronic submission system (ESS) form for the second call is now open for all pre-proposals (stage 1), which shall be submitted via the Electronic Submission System (ESS) of the Call Secretariat, accessible via the web pages of GEOTHERMICA until September 13, 2019.
All information on how to submit your pre-proposals are available in the Calls section of the GEOTHERMICA website.
