Final Report - EGS PILOT PLANT (European geothermal project for the construction of a scientific pilot plant based on an Enhanced Geothermal System)

Project ID: 502706
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final report of the EGS PILOT PLANT project, which started in 2004 and aimed to design, build and test a geothermal power plant based on multi-well enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). The general objective was to produce electricity by designing technically and economically large industrial units up to >25 MWe.

It summarises the project activities and results over 60 months. The report begins with a description of the project's objectives and the site of the research. There is information of the geothermal characteristics, hydraulics and seismicity of the site and there is an analysis of the experiments and research conducted. The modelling approach for the reservoir itself and economics is presented and also new related projects and perspectives, based on the work already done within EGS PILOT PLANT.
