Pixil Workshop - Exploring the subsurface for geothermal energy: A local and global perspective

Date: Thu, Jan 28 2021

Location: Online

DATE: 28-29 January 2021
TIME: 9:39-12:00

Geothermal energy is a key energy source for a fully renewable mix. It provides efficient cooling and heating and can also produce a baseline electric output under certain conditions. In this event we will present novel approaches towards characterizing the subsurface and discuss their role in improving the uptake of geothermal energy sources. We will have a look at opportunities and barriers in Spain and France and discuss examples from other regions where geothermal energy is becoming a key component in a carbon-free energy future.
