Support stakeholders fora on geothermal systems

Objective

In order to decarbonise the power, heating, and transport sectors and reach a climate neutrality by 2050, Europe needs a wide range of renewable technologies, including geothermal systems. Geothermal will be a key energy source in the European decarbonized energy mix. Indeed, geothermal is a unique energy source that can provide a significant share of electricity, heating and cooling, thermal storage and minerals such as lithium in 2022 and beyond. It is a source of energy which is renewable, local and continuously available as it is not dependent on climate conditions. Europe has pioneered the exploitation of geothermal resources for over a century and the EU still maintains a leading role due to research, innovation and the development of new technologies allowing the production of geothermal power as well as heating and cooling everywhere.

In this proposal, the project GEOTHERM-FORA aims at facilitating Research and Innovation (R&I) activities in geothermal systems by supporting the workResearch, development, and innovation (RD&I) are needed to develop renewable technologies, accompanied by market uptake measures. Major investments in geothermal research and innovation are necessary to develop and deploy the next generation of geothermal technologies and answering the challenges for the transformation of our energy system towards a decarbonisation of our economy.
