The European Geothermal Congress is the event which brings together the entire European geothermal sector and attracts many from outside the continent.
The call for abstracts will help shaping the programme of the European Geothermal Congress 2022 (EGC2022). To ensure the broadest participation possible, the Organising Committee has decided to postpone the deadline for the submission of the abstracts for one month, until Friday 01/10/2021.
The consultation is open to all geothermal stakeholders wishing to contribute to the proposals for Harmonised procedure on the Environment Impact Assessment for Geothermal Development and Harmonised European Geothermal Licensing Guidelines.
The Commission adopted this week a Communication on Energy Prices, to tackle the exceptional rise in global energy prices, which is projected to last through the winter.
Following the sharp increase in electricity and gas prices over the summer, and as consequences are increasingly being felt by European households with the beginning of the winter heating season, EGEC wrote a letter to the European Council and the European Commission.
EGEC sent an official letter to the members of the Platform on Sustainable Finance to ensure that the “Full list of Technical Screening Criteria” in Annex B accurately reflects the environmental benefits of geothermal technologies.
The World Geothermal Congress (WGC) will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland in May 2021 in the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre. WGC is finally coming to Iceland, a country that has shown so clearly to the world how renewable energy can power a modern economy in the 21st century. The Icelandic geothermal community has played a vital role in the technological development of geothermal power for the past decades, not only in power generation but also in district heating and direct use.
It is becoming increasingly clear how vitally essential it is to make rapid and ambitious progress in climate protection. The deep geothermal energy can make an important contribution to both electricity and heat generation, which will also be illustrated at this year's practical forum with many concrete examples.
The 2021 edition of the 100% Renewable Heating and Cooling for a Sustainable Future – 100% RHC Event, will take place online on the 28th October 2021, from 2 pm to 4.45 pm (CET). Would you like to learn more about… The RHC deployment and implementation report, with perspectives from industry stakeholders and the Horizontal Working Groups (Buildings, Cities, Districts, and Industries)? Innovative technology developments for a 100% RHC sector and panel discussions on the future of RHC technologies? Free registration is still open via this form.
