Europe is the first continent that has decided to go carbon-neutral by 2050. Developing all renewable energy sources is an essential path to reach this objective.
EGEC Geothermal writes to Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager to ask for a full review of the impact of the competitive distortion of the Internal Market for Gas legal base.
Ahead of the State of the Union, EGEC advocates for putting a price on carbon emissions in heating and cooling.
EGEC sent a letter to the Commission recommending a full review of the impact of the competitive distortion of the Internal Market for Gas legal base as well as its associated direct and indirect fossil fuel subsidies on the provision of renewable heating and cooling services, particularly competition from geothermal energy sources.
EGEC, together with Bioenergy Europe and Solar Heat Europe, sent a letter to the Commission on empowering the Renewable Energy Directive to deliver the European Green Deal and Renovation Wave.
The first Horizon Europe Strategic Plan will define the strategic orientations for Europe’s R&I investments over the period 2021-2024. Among its recommendations, EGEC underlined the R&I funding needs for innovative technologies, like geothermal lithium.

This workshop has been organized by USEA in collaboration with UNEP, under the auspices of the African Geothermal Centre of Exellence (AGCE). In this workshop, innovations will be discussed which allow geothermal resource to have a greater benefit, on both the grid and as an engine of Local Economic Growth in East Africa. Since there is no one “best” strategy, the workshop's structure and goal is for participants to start developing strategies tailored to their particular resources, needs, and opportunities.
This web conference will go over the project “Roll-out of Deep Geothermal Energy in NW-Europe” (DGE-ROLLOUT) which facilitates the use of deep geothermal energy as a climate-friendly energy resource to reduce CO2 emissions and to protect the environment in North-West Europe.
