The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Deep Geothermal (ETIP DG)

The European Technology & Innovation Platform on Deep Geothermal (ETIP-DG) is an open stakeholder group, endorsed by the European Commission under the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan), with the objective to enable the advancement of the deep geothermal energy sector. It was launched in March 2016 and brings together representatives from industry, academia, research centres, and sectoral associations, covering the entire deep geothermal energy value chain.

Key activities of ETIP DG:

  • The development of a long term common Vision for deep geothermal for power and/or heat.
  • The development of a European Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for deep geothermal for the next decade(s).
  • Recommendations for the implementation of the strategic research agenda through a customised Technology Roadmap.
  • Contribution to the European industry and research to maintain and consolidate its leading position in energy technologies for geothermal.

In terms of organisation, ETIP DG is composed of a Steering Committee, and as of 2021, there are 8 Working Groups (WGs) that cover different topics and together contribute to the achievement of the ETIP-DG’s objectives:

  1. Market Uptake
  2. Georessources assessment
  3. Power Systems
  4. Heating and Cooling Systems
  5. Materials
  6. Circularity and Sustainability
  7. Well Technology
  8. Environment
