Successfully addressing the first call of the Danube Transnational Programme: DARLINGe, a new geothermal project will work to boost the sustainable utilization of the existing, however still largely unexploited, deep geothermal resources in the heating sector in the Southern region of the Pannonian Basin.
The specific objectives of the DARLINGe project are: to increase the use of geothermal energy and help the penetration of energy efficient cascade systems; to establish a market-replicable tool-box (methodology) for sustainable geothermal reservoir management; to advance stakeholder cooperation to foster geothermal developments and to create a strong geothermal value chain.
According to the DARLINGe project team, the project results will contribute to increase the share of geothermal energy in the energy mix and to make its use more efficient and sustainable, therefore reducing the dependence of the Danube Region on imported fossil fuels.
The launch event of the project will take place on April 10 2017, at the Geological and Geophysical Institute of Hungary, 1143 Budapest, Stefánia 14. More details and the draft agenda are available here.
