The Renewable Heating and Cooling Platform’s Geothermal Technology Panel has published the Strategic Research Priorities for Geothermal Technology (heating & cooling) and the Strategic Research Priorities for the Geothermal Electricity (TP Geoelec).
Strategic Research Priorities for the Geothermal Electricity presents the vision of the European geothermal electricity industry. It completes the Strategic Research Priorities for Geothermal Technology (heating & cooling). Starting with the present situation, the vision sets out in global terms how geothermal stakeholders see the future development of their industry. It reflects the basic features of geothermal electricity production, the way the systems are expected to evolve and how the industry and associated stakeholders should evolve to make it happen. Strategic Research Priorities for Geothermal Electricity aims to draw a realistic picture of how a European Geothermal Electricity production industry can be built, which will effectively lead towards developing a reliable and sustainable source of energy and providing numerous jobs for all kinds of qualifications across the area (ref: www.egec.org)
