Geothermal energy projects must be prioritised, and development accelerated to reach the European Commission’s 55% emissions reduction target by 2030. The adoption of new European sustainable finance is an opportunity to boost clean energy projects, such as geothermal ones. The Life Cycle Assessment methodology developed within the Horizon 2020 GEOENVI project can support the assessment of the environmental performance of geothermal projects, demonstrating their sustainability.
This event will give an overview of some GEOENVI case studies where Life Cycle Assessment has been applied. It will also discuss how the sustainable finance legislation can unlock investment in the geothermal sector.
