GeoSmart Project Findings Published in Heat Exchanger World

Mon, 10 October, 2022

Details of the GeoSmart Project have been published in Heat Exchanger World magazine.

The impact and objectives of GeoSmart include combining the thermal energy storage with flexible organic rankine cycle solutions to provide a highly flexible operational capability of a geothermal installation.

Amidst the growing challenges of soaring energy prices, geopolitical issues and securing Net Zero for climate sustainability, geothermal energy presents exciting opportunities by providing a much lower carbon footprint and flexibility as opposed to other resources in the energy mix. In the context of GeoSmart, the consortium is developing innovations that will contribute towards improving the flexibility and efficiency of geothermal heat and power systems.

The project is led by TWI as coordinator to ensure project delivery including management of a multidisciplinary team of 19 collaborators, each providing specialist domain knowledge and expertise to fulfil the project objectives.

The project was originally funded for four years and is due to be completed by September 2024. The integration of the system is planned for early next year along with the thermal energy storage system as part of full-scale demonstration of the GeoSmart system.

The GeoSmart project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme grant agreement 818576
