Support stakeholders fora on geothermal systems:
In order to decarbonise the power, heating, and transport sectors and reach climate neutrality by 2050, Europe needs a wide range of renewable technologies, including geothermal systems. Geothermal will be a key energy source in the European decarbonised energy mix. Indeed, geothermal is a unique energy source that can provide a significant share of electricity, heating and cooling, thermal storage and minerals such as lithium in 2022 and beyond. It is a source of energy which is renewable, local and continuously available, as it is not dependent on climate conditions. Europe has pioneered the exploitation of geothermal resources for over a century, and the EU still maintains a leading role due to research, innovation and the development of new technologies allowing the production of geothermal power as well as heating and cooling everywhere.
