EGEC Geothermal Market Report 2018


  • PUBLISHED: June 3, 2019


The EGEC Geothermal Market Report confirms the trend towards the steady growth observed in recent years, but also notes the need for greater recognition in order to enable the full deployment of geothermal energy in Europe.

Three important milestones mark the 2018 edition of this EGEC market report: (i) total installed capacity is now more than 3 GWe; (ii) the sector has doubled its capacity in 6 years;
(iii) as of 2018, more than 300 geothermal district heating systems are in operation, compared to 187 in 2010.

Meanwhile, the shallow geothermal sector is displaying continuous growth, approaching the threshold of 2 million units installed, a figure which has been achieved thanks to continued interest in both historical markets and rapidly growing new markets.


The full version of the EGEC Geothermal Market Report, complete with supporting data and tables, is available to EGEC members.
