First Geothermal District Heating and Cooling Day03/10/2022
GEOTHERMAL ENERGY USE IN HEATING AND COOLING NETWORKS
Geothermal energy as well as district heating have a long tradition of use but still cover a marginal niche of around 1% of the European heating and cooling supply. In contrast, both concepts have a significant potential to cover future heating and cooling demands in the future at low costs, low emissions, high level of efficiency and supply guarantee. The benefits of Geothermal District Heating and Cooling must be made available to users so that society contributes to the increase in demand for these technologies.
ABOUT THE EVENT
The Geothermal District Heating and Cooling Day intends to connect science and society by presenting recent developments and prospects, supporting the interlinking of stakeholders across Europe and jointly addressing present challenges and barriers for the deployment of geothermal energy supported heating and cooling networks in Europe.
Due to the special opportunity given by the European Geothermal Congress 2022, the first Geothermal District Heating and Cooling Day event will have a stronger focus on interconnecting researchers related to geothermal energy use in heating and cooling networks from a trans-disciplinary perspective.
During the afternoon session, the EU-funded CROWDTHERMAL project will hold its final conference. During the conference, the project team will present a set of reports, addressing social, environmental, financial, and risk mitigation aspects of community-financed geothermal projects.
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THE MICRO-PRESENTATIONS
All presentations listed under the categories “poster related micro presentation” are subject to a public call for contributions. We are looking for contributions related to geoscientific, technological or socio-economic aspects related to the use of geothermal energy in heating and cooling networks. We kindly ask to submit your application presenting a short, 50 words abstract, before 30 September 2022 to CA18219@geologie.ac.at. Invited presenters will be asked to bring a printed poster to the event.
