Petrothermal energy concepts like Hot Dry Rock or Enhanced Geothermal Systems have already been introduced in the 1970s in the United States and since then tested at some research and demonstration sites across the globe. Although the transition from a testing and demonstration towards a market implementation stage has not been yet achieved, petrothermal energy has the potential to become a key technology for the production of electricity and the supply of heating networks. The main reason for that is given by the fact, that this technology has a lower dependency on local hydrogeological conditions than the conventional use of geothermal energy.
This webinar aims to inform about developments in petrothermal energy research across the globe and to discuss future opportunities as well as current barriers to be addressed by research.
