In the SET plan, Europe has set its renewable energy ambitions, including for geothermal. A specific geothermal Implementation plan has been released and is now executed. In order to reach the goals of placing Europe at the forefront of the low carbon energy scene, an Implementation Working Group (IWG) is created to move forward the Deep Geothermal Implementation Plan (DG-IP), endorsed by the SET Plan Steering Committee.
A support unit for the Deep Geothermal Implementation Working Group (DG-IWG) has been set up to achieve DG-IWG goals efficiently and productively. The support unit has three main work streams:
1) to provide the DG-IWG with relevant information and data from the various stakeholder groups for the DG-IWG to be able to take decisions on required actions;
2) to promote and organise initiatives to mobilise the geothermal community to implement the actions identified in the implementation plan, e.g.: workshops, brokerages, consortium building and exploitation of RD&I results;
3) provide a secretariat for the DG-IWG for assistance on administrative issues and strategy support.
The Declaration of Intent’s goals are the following:
