The Voice of Geothermal in Europe

ABOUT EGEC GEOTHERMAL

Representing The European Geothermal Industry

EGEC, the European Geothermal Energy Council, is a non-profit international organisation founded in 1998 to promote the European geothermal industry and enable its development both in Europe and worldwide, by shaping policy, improving business condition, and driving more research and development.

Based in Brussels, we work with our members on policy, market intelligence, and communication, providing a link between the industry and European institutions. More than 120 members from 28 countries, including developers, equipment manufacturers, electricity providers, national associations, consultants, research centres, geological surveys, and public authorities, make EGEC a unique network, uniting and representing the entire geothermal sector.

ABOUT GEOTHERMAL ENERGY

Geothermal energy: from the earth, a renewable energy resource delivering heat and power 24 hours a day throughout the year. Nearly infinite, and available all over the world.

Geothermal energy is the energy stored in form of heat below the earth’s surface. Its potential is inexhaustible, comparable to that of the sun. Beside electric power generation, today geothermal energy is used for district heating, heating and cooling of buildings, and many other direct uses.

Geothermal power. Successful production of electricity from geothermal heat was first achieved in Larderello in Italy, in the early 1900s. Since then, the production of geothermal electricity has steadily increased. Unlike other weather dependant renewables, geothermal is available at any time. Moreover, most recent technological developments, like Enhanced Geothermal Systems, make it now possible to produce geothermal electricity anywhere, and not only in areas with rich geothermal reservoirs. For these reasons, geothermal electricity is key to stabilise the grid and reduce the overall system costs of the future electricity systems. Providing a local source of electricity for the base load will also allow the total energy bill to decrease and make energy more sustainable and affordable. To know more visit www.geoelec.eu

Geothermal district heating and other direct uses. Geothermal district heating, where the geothermal resource is connected to a heat network, is an ongoing European success story, with a rate at which new capacity is installed that is increasing every year. The first regions to install geothermal district heating were those with the best hydrothermal potential, but today, with new technologies and systems, an increasing number of regions are turning to it. Its potential is significant and clear, but a level playing field in the heating sector, with well-established and transparent support schemes, must be put in place to reap the full benefits of the latest technological developments. On other direct-uses applications include desalination, growing plants in greenhouses, drying crops, snow-melting, and several industrial processes. To know more visit www.geodh.eu

Geothermal heat pumps for heating and cooling. Geothermal heat pumps take advantage of subterranean temperatures at shallow depths (between 0 and 500m) to provide heating in the winter and cooling in the summer to homes, businesses and industry. They can use virtually every temperature level in the underground, even if it is only 3-15 °C. Shallow geothermal systems are very versatile and can be adapted to almost every subsurface condition. They can be used in different kind of structures, from small, residential houses to large individual buildings or complexes of buildings, such as offices, hotels, schools, shopping centres, and so on. To know more visit www.heatunderyourfeet.eu

Geothermal in the future energy mix. Only a tiny portion of the potential geothermal energy is explored and used in Europe. Increasing the use of geothermal energy will allow a substantial reduction of CO2 emissions, savings in primary energy, and the creation and sustenance of a strong work force of various disciplines and on many skill levels. Geothermal has a crucial role to play in the future energy system.
