The objective of GEOENVI is for deep geothermal energy to play its role in Europe’s future energy supply in an increasingly sustainable manner and to create a robust strategy to mitigate environmental concerns. During 2020, the GEOENVI consortium have been offering several seminars and working groups in the six participating countries. The most successful event in Iceland was the national training seminar on Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that allows analysis and comparison of the environmental impacts of different energy production technologies. In total 25 participants joined the training seminar with participants from e.g. energy companies, service providers, engineering offices, project developers and construction, distributors ect. GEORG was responsible for reports on market actors mapping and engagement strategies. That work will be finish early in 2020. The GEOENVI project focuses on six key countries with varying deep geothermal potential, markets maturity and geological settings: France, Italy, Belgium, Iceland, Turkey and Hungary. The GEOENVI project will end in April 2021.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 818242.
