EGEC Geothermal’s reaction to the Renovation Wave & Commission Recommendation on energy poverty.
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.
EGEC welcomes the European Commission’s call to revise its competition policy that will support the successful implementation of the European Green Deal.
EGEC sent its inputs on the review of EU’s methodology on energy statistics after meeting the European Commission earlier this month to discuss the representation of geothermal energy in EU statistics.
The integration of circularity into geothermal energy production indicates that all its components and products need to be optimised, re-used, repaired, redistributed, refurbished, and/or remanufactured. Circularity is the cornerstone of a sustainable future, where geothermal and other renewable sources have a crucial role to play.

Heat represents more than half of Europe’s energy needs and the vast majority of it comes from fossil fuels. Shallow geothermal energy can be the key to decarbonise heating and cooling, being a clean and mature technology that could be installed anywhere in Europe.
10:00 – 14:30 CET
This online conference is the first in a series considering the future for Geothermal Energy in Northern Ireland. As we look toward our recovery from a global pandemic, we can take a fresh and renewed approach to build a fairer, greener and more resilient economy. Geothermal Energy can play a fundamental role in this as we build back better.
This conference aims to show the results carried out through the Geoatlantic project. The main aim of the project was to develop tools and methodologies that create the necessary conditions to favour a transition away from traditional fossil fuel based energy production, whilst promoting the use of geothermal energy as an alternative. All partners will present their project results. Furthermore, the conference will count with the participation of two external experts. They will give us information about the future of geothermal energy in Europe and the situation in coordinators region (Galicia).
