Tackling the environmental concerns for deploying geothermal energy in Europe

The objective of the GEOENVI project is to answer environmental concerns in terms of both impacts and risks, by first setting an adapted methodology for assessing environment impacts to the project developers, and by assessing the environmental impacts and risks of geothermal projects operational or in development in Europe.

GEOENVI

The GEOENVI project has the objective to make sure that deep geothermal energy can play its role in Europe’s future energy supply in an increasingly sustainable way and to create a robust strategy to answer environmental concerns. It will engage with all geothermal stakeholders to ensure the exchange of best practices, the test of harmonized methods in selected areas and then, to facilitate its replication across Europe.

One of the main results of the project is the development of a simplified Life Cycle Assessment methodology, which can calculate the environmental impacts and benefits of geothermal projects in only 1 day.

The project is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and coordinated by EGEC.
