Geothermal energy has a great potential to supply heat and cold development in each country. Heating and cooling represents half of the energy consumption in Europe. Geothermal can supply heating, cooling and hot water with base load, at different temperature, it’s also sizable and can be coupled with an underground thermal energy storage. It can provide h&c to buildings, industry, services and the agriculture sectors.
Geothermal lithium and other minerals, as by-product in geothermal heat and electricity systems, are the game-changer for decarbonisation.FIND OUT MORE
Geothermal electricity is key to stabilising the grid and reducing the overall system costs of future electricity system. Not only is it more affordable it is also a reliable choice as geothermal is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.FIND OUT MORE
To finance small and large scale geothermal projects, it requires reducing uncertainty in terms of the cost of the project as it is capital intensive. By establishing a risk insurance all over the world that would cover the exploration and first drilling for large geothermal projects, it could greatly aid in expanding the market.FIND OUT MORE
Geothermal energy has a great potential for development in many countries. However, the advantages of using geothermal for power production and heating & cooling are not widely known. It is essential to take into consideration the social and environmental concerns and benefits for the future.FIND OUT MORE
