Geothermal energy is expected to play an important role in the transition from fossil-based to zero-carbon based energy supply. A key step towards the implementation of a geothermal project is the exploration phase. At this initial stage proper use of geophysical tools represent an asset to reduce exploration costs and uncertainty, and provide the necessary information for the designing phase. In this workshop we will share recent advances in geophysical inversion and modelling, and learn from some practical experiences using geophysical methods to characterise geothermal environments. At the same time, we will discuss the situation and necessities of the geothermal sector and how research institutions can contribute to answer some of the most relevant questions in the industry.
– Facilitate the exchange of knowledge and practical experiences
– Map the necessities of the geothermal sector in terms of geophysical exploration and usage of inversion codes
– Communicate PIXIL scientific finding among peers
– Consolidate and expand the transboundary network of research institutions, companies, and stakeholders working in the geothermal sector
