The one-day conference will present the final results of the H2020 DESCRAMBLE Project and discuss about their implications and future application. The meeting will be held at the Auditorium of the CNR Research Area of Pisa, Italy, Via Moruzzi 1, on 28th March 2018, from 8.30 to 17.00.
The conference will bring together EU and national representatives from industry and research to explore and discuss opportunities and strengths related to drilling in superhot condition for producing heat and electrical power.
The project’s scope has been the development of new drilling technologies and concepts for geothermal energy exploitation from deep and super-critical geothermal resources in continental Europe. To achieve this scope, the first well in the world in an intra-continental site at a middle-crustal level has been drilled, in order to test and demonstrate novel drilling techniques to control gas emissions, the aggressive environment and the high temperature/pressure expected from the deep fluids, and to improve knowledge of deep chemical-physical conditions. The conference results will inform future policy and research debates, including the work of the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Deep Geothermal, the European Energy Research Alliance-Joint Programme on Geothermal Energy and the geothermal community.
Conference admission is free of charge. For registration to the conference, please register online until March 28, 2018.
A poster session is foreseen. Contributions from DESCRAMBLE Project partners and external teams or individuals interested in sharing details on topics related to drilling and exploring super-hot conditions are welcome. Abstracts are required for posters and an Abstract Book will be available at the Conference site. Abstracts, prepared using the provided template, should be sent by March 10, 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org (email object: DESCRAMBLE).
