Chea-GSHPs| Cheap and Efficient Application of Reliable Ground Source Heat Exchangers and Pumps
Cheap-GSHPs objective is to reduce the total cost of ownership, increase the safety and awareness of shallow geothermal systems throughout Europe.
CHPM2030 | Combined Heat, Power and Metal extraction
CHPM2030 aims to develop a novel and potentially disruptive technology solution that can help satisfy the European needs for energy and strategic metals in a single interlinked process.
DEEPEGS | Deployment of deep Enhanced Geothermal Systems for Sustainable Energy Business
The goal with the DEEPEGS project is to demonstrate the feasibility of enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) for delivering energy from renewable resources in Europe.
Descramble | Drilling in dEep, Super-CRitical AMBient of continentaL Europe
The DESCRAMBLE project proposes to drill in continental-crust, super-critical geothermal conditions, and to test and demonstrate novel drilling techniques to control gas emissions, the aggressive environment and the high temperature/pressure expected from the deep fluids.
DESTRESS | Demonstration of soft stimulation treatments of geothermal reservoirs
DESTRESS is aimed at creating EGS (Enhanced geothermal systems) reservoirs with sufficient permeability, fracture orientation and spacing for economic use of underground heat. The concepts are based on experience in previous projects, on scientific progress and developments in other fields, mainly the oil & gas sector.
COST Action 1405
GABI | Geothermal energy Applications in Buildings and Infrastructure
The increased need for renewable energy sources has led to expansion of shallow geothermal applications for heating and/or cooling of buildings. The integration of heat exchangers in those elements of the structure that interface with the ground, such as foundations, tunnels and diaphragm walls, is particularly attractive because of the inherent cost saving involved in combining a required structural component with the harvesting of geothermal energy.
GEMex | Geothermal Cooperation Europe Mexico for EGS and super-hot geothermal systems
GEMex has the ambition to bring together the extended Mexican know how of discovering, developing, and deploying conventional geothermal energy systems with a variety of European expertise from similar geothermal energy systems (Italy, Iceland etc.), of developing EGS technology, and finding new approaches to make use of super-hot geothermal systems.
GeoPLASMA-CE is an Interreg Central Europe project dealing with different aspects of shallow geothermal use for heating and cooling in both urban and rural regions in Central Europe. In collaboration with geological surveys, universities, non-profit organizations, administrative bodies and private companies, new management strategies for the effective and sustainable use of shallow geothermal will be explored in six different pilot areas in Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Austria and Slovenia. The project aims at generating web based information system for the visualization of shallow geothermal potential and risk. Moreover, it also intends to create an expert platform to connect experts and stakeholders in the field of shallow geothermal use in Central Europe.
GEOTeCH | Geothermal Technology for €conomic Cooling and Heating
The Energy Efficiency Directive sets out measures to achieve further savings in energy supply and use. Indeed buildings represent one of the biggest potential of unused energy savings.
GeoWell | Innovative materials and designs for long-life high-temperature geothermal wells
New concepts for high-temperature geothermal well technologies are strongly needed to accelerate the development of geothermal resources for power generation in Europe and worldwide in a cost effective and environmentally friendly way. The GeoWell project will address the major bottlenecks like high investment and maintenance costs by developing innovative materials and designs that are superior to the state of the art concepts.
