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 2019, the GEOENVI consortium worked on the concept of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) that allows analysis and comparison of the environmental impacts of different energy production technologies. One of the goals of GEOENVI is engaging with both decision-makers and geothermal market actors. GEORG is 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.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 818242.
