The GeoSmart project team are hosting a workshop at the Iceland Geothermal Conference (IGC) 2024 in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The workshop, ‘GeoSmart meets Stakeholders in Reykjavik,’ will take place from 13:00 to 17:00 at Rima - Harpa Concert Hall on Tuesday, 28th May, 2024 and is free of charge and open to the public.

We will unveil two groundbreaking demonstration sites that will showcase technology tests conducted in Germany and Turkey, providing valuable insights into the future of geothermal solutions.

Additionally, we will present findings from the comprehensive mapping of the needs and preferences of Icelandic geothermal stakeholders, offering a unique perspective on flexibility solutions, with a focus on the innovative offerings provided by GeoSmart.

The workshop agenda includes a welcome from the First Lady of Iceland, followed by a short introduction to the project from TWI and EGEC. Zorlu will then deliver an exploration of the progression of GeoSmart activities at Kizildere geothermal site before experts from the University of Iceland present on, ‘Overcoming silica scaling constraints in geothermal power plants: New experimental and modelling results in support of a novel scaling reduction system.’

Natürlich Insheim GmbH will then present on, ‘Technologies for geothermal to enhance competitiveness in smart and flexible operation,’ before TWI Ltd discuss, ‘Materials and corrosion challenges in PCM storage system for geothermal plants.’

A break will then be followed by a discussion of, ‘Opportunities and challenges of geothermal energy in Turkiye and Belgium, including GeoSmart technologies/stakeholder perspective,’ courtesy of VITO/METU followed by an exploration of stakeholder interviews courtesy of ICETEC. The final part of the workshop is a panel session which leads to the close of the workshop.

Although this workshop is free of charge, there are limited seats available on a first come-first served basis.
