Geothermica DEEP Innovation

Geothermica DEEP Innovation for: De-Risking Enhanced Geothermal Energy Projects

Induced seismicity poses a tremendous challenge to future deep geothermal energy exploitation. The large international and multidisciplinary EC GEOTHERMICA DEEP project combines innovation in sensors and data analysis with demonstration and knowledge transfer activities into one coherent work program that will have a profound impact on de-risking future EGS projects. Balancing risk and economic output is a key requirement and DEEP has a strong focus on optimization of monitoring and risk assessment procedures in order to reduce commercial costs to future projects. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with industry partners and in partnership with the US Department of Energy geothermal test site FORGE in Utah.
