The GeoSmart project is to be presented at a workshop being held by GeoSmart consortium members, the European Geothermal Energy Council (EGEC) and VITO for members of the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Deep Geothermal (ETIP-DG).
The event, which is taking place on 23 February 2022, is titled, ‘towards flexibility of geothermal plants’ and will include presentations on the GeoSmart project, innovations at the Insheim site in Germany and the Kizidere plant in Turkey as well as information on the hybridisation of plants and an interactive session with the audience. ETIP-DG will also review topics on power systems and cooling systems.
The aim of the workshop is to provide an insight into the technological solutions developed during the GeoSmart project and to collect feedback from geothermal stakeholders as well as providing a unique opportunity to raise questions and share views about the potential and benefits of geothermal plants.
Launched in 2016, ETIP-DG is an open stakeholder group formed of representatives from industry, academia, research centres, and sectoral associations.
Endorsed by the European Commission under the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan), ETIP-DG has the objective of enabling deep geothermal technology to proliferate and reach its full potential across Europe by targeting the primary objective of overall cost reduction, including environmental, social, and technological costs.
The GEOSMART project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Grant agreement 818576.
