The Support Unit Deep Geothermal Implementation Group, or SU-DG-IWG, is an ambitious project recently launched that joined GEORGs Project Office Portfolio in 2019 and the expanding RD&I ecosystem of Geothermal in Europe. Endorsed by the SET-Plan and building on the successful partnership and philosophy of GEOTHERMICA, SU-DG-IWG will provide broad support to Deep Geothermal Systems projects implementing the geothermal targets of the SET-Plan. The SU-DG-IWG consortium focuses on innovative ways to accelerate the development of synergies and strategies and new ways to maximise the impart of knowledge, funding and market growth of Deep Geothermal in a European context, both on a national and regional scale.
GEORG is managing the Secretariat of the project, assisting the Coordinator and supports internal communication.
GEORG is also co-leader of „Alignment and synergies effects“. A work package aimed at supporting the Implementation working group by offering strategic recommendation and proposals, based on the gathered information from project partners. Participation in SU-DG-IWG ensures that GEORG is well placed to influence the direction of geothermal development in Europe at the highest level.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 838814.
