Geothermal energy offers many advantages for the clean and sustainable energy transition by covering the demand of low temperature heat between 10°C and around 150°C. Geothermal energy is a long-term stable and reliable heat source providing high system efficiencies and low surface space consumption. However, the overall share inside the heating & cooling market is still less than 2%.
Our session focuses on a science to policy and industry dialogue on the opportunities and prevailing barriers towards a better integration of geothermal energy in multivalent heating and cooling networks at various temperature levels. This session will cover short keynotes for examining geothermal energy supported district heating and cooling networks from different perspectives (R&D, industry and policy) followed by an interactive panel discussion focusing on strategies and needed measures to better integrate this technology into the European heating & cooling market.
This event is organised within the European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2021.
