The European Technology and Innovation Platforms (ETIPs) have been recognised by the European Commission as a tool to strengthen cooperation with Stakeholders under the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan), as part of the H2020 programme.
The Deep Geothermal European Technology and Innovation Platform (DG ETIP) was launched in March 2016, and the European Commission, DG RTD, officially recognised it as an ETIP in July 2016.
The Deep Geothermal ETIP is an open stakeholder group, including representatives from industry, academia, research centres, and sectoral associations, covering the entire deep geothermal energy exploration, production and utilization value chain.
Its overarching objective is to enable deep geothermal technology, in particular Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS), to proliferate and move from the current European R&D and pilot-sites to other European countries and different geological situations. The primary objective is overall cost reduction, including social, environmental and technological costs.
Terms of Reference (ToR) to establish the governance and procedures of the Deep Geothermal ETIP were adopted in June 2016.
Participation to the Deep Geothermal ETIP is free. If interested, please register here.
