Geothermal recognised as a vital element of the REPowerEU plan  

PUBLISHED: May 18, 2022


18 May 2022 - The European Commission’s REPowerEU plan outlined a series of proposals to move geothermal from niche to a mainstream solution to addressing the climate, energy transition and Ukraine crises. 





The EU Solar Strategy called for a trebling of geothermal capacity by 2030 whilst the EU Save Communication and legislative proposals outlined essential improvements that create a market for geothermal heating, cooling, and power as well as streamlining the process for capacity to come online. Geothermal supply base load electricity to stabilise the grid, secure the supply, and green the power. Geothermal heating and cooling is key to decarbonise buildings and the industry.





The Communication also calls for 20 million geothermal and ambient heat pumps to be installed in the EU by 2026 and nearly 60 million units by 2030.





An additional €20 billion grant funding to Member States to deliver these investments is welcome. Some of this finance should be used for an EU financial de-risking scheme to accelerate investment in geothermal and other renewable heating solutions.





Phillipe Dumas, Secretary-General of the European Geothermal Energy Council said:





“Today geothermal finally achieved the recognition it has long merited. Now it is vital that permitting rules, an EU-wide financial risk mitigation framework and stronger rules to remove fossil heating are put into action.”
