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).
With the cooperation of CY Cergy Paris Université (France) andUniversité de Neuchâtel (Switzerland), the 12th European Geothermal PhD Days are eager to prepare a scientific programme and provide an opportunity for PhD students to meet many of their peers in geothermal research and to make connections between one another
CY Cergy Paris University (CYU) partner is calling the whole consortium to prepare for the training programme of the MEET project, the Geothermal Winter School 2021. Through this meeting, PhD students have the opportunity to get more visibility for their research work. The event is oriented towards practical knowledge and applied geosciences in Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) It will focus on Research & Development topics raised by the MEET project regarding EGS potential in Europe.

The World Renewable Energy Congress (WREC) and Network (WREN) is a non-profit company helping foster the transfer of renewable energy technology from developed countries to developing countries. This congress will be their 30th anniversary.
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.
