First Geothermal District Heating and Cooling Day event: Bringing Geothermal heating and cooling networks closer to the people + CROWDTHERMAL Final Conference
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. The event will be held in Berlin on 20 October 2022 as a side-event of the European Geothermal Congress.
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.
