GeoSmart Project Highlighted at TWI Event

Wed, 26 January, 2022

The GeoSmart Project was mentioned as part of a keynote speech delivered at TWI’s 4th Innovation Partner Matching and Brokerage Workshop on 12 January 2022.

The event, which focused on ‘Sustainability, circular and low emission value chain, digitalised production and digital tools for circular economy,’ included presentations from experts from TWI, the TWI Innovation Network, Proctor and Gamble, and the Zorlu Enerji Group.

The Zorlu Enerji Group’s R&D manager, Ural Halaçoğlu, delivered a presentation called, ‘Next Generation of Energy Above the Horizon,’ which provided information on the history and foundations of the company and their growth from being a textiles company to becoming a multi-disciplinary company covering areas including energy and electronics.

Ural spoke on Zorlu’s Horizon2020-funded projects related to renewable energy, including the TWI-collaborative GeoSmart project. Ural also detailed other work related to geothermal energy including the collaborative GEOPRO project. Both of these projects relate to the exploitation of geothermal energy as part of the future renewable energy mix and we would like to thank Ural for helping to spread the word on this important work.


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