Risk register

Context and Identification of potential risks, including the typology of projects and the main risk factors to be taken into account in the assessment

Existing insurance schemes

Report presenting in details the existing national and regional “insurance” systems dealing with the resource and technical risks in Europe and Globally.


Based on the assessment, an online tool to present risks to financial institutions, insurance brokers, authorities etc It include a classification of projects based on regions / depth / type (hydrothermal / petrothermal / EGS and Electricity / Heat) and a globally applicable risk reporting code
