GEOTHERMICA ERA-NET Co-fund Action

Description

The overall aim of this collaborative action is to accelerate the deployment of geothermal energy in Europe by:  Pooling national and EC funds for research and innovation  Focusing on improving business cases for geothermal energy and  Establishing a long-lasting strategic collaboration of national geothermal research and innovation program owners and managers of the GEOTHERMICA consortium. GEOTHERMICA aims at direct use and power generation from geothermal resources in an optimized way, which includes integrated and combined systems (e.g. heat pumps, other forms of renewable energy, and using the underground as a heating and cooling energy storage site). Until now, the development of geothermal energy has mainly been based on national funding for research, development and deployment (RD&D) and market support measures, with few exceptions of country-to-country bilateral and cooperative agreements. Now it is time to embark on the next step: to combine forces at the European level and realize major developments on a big scale through a platform of jointly funded European RD&D projects. The European perspective bundles national funding efforts and provides the opportunity to unite the geothermal knowledge of all participating countries.
