    GeoPLASMA-CE workshop at EUSEW 2019

    Brussels, Belgium

    In regard to the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) and its main objectives, EuroGeoSurveys and its GeoEnergy Expert Group (EGS GEEG) will support GeoPLASMA-CE's workshop for providing awareness about the main benefits of geology and geothermal energy and how these sectors can contribute to a more sustainable European economy and a zero carbon emission future.

    The upcoming zero-emission energy transition not only needs techno-scientific advancements but also cultural, social and political choices – A regime shift often calling for a public debate. The workshop therefore, aims to create awareness about the maturation of the geothermal energy and its value to usher a clean and sustainable energy future whilst highlighting the environmental, financial and technical challenges and associated advancements in tapping this natural resource. Recent developments in identification of these challenges and their solutions, undertaken in the framework of different European funded projects on geothermal energy, will be presented.

    In a wider perspective, EuroGeoSurveys and GeoPLASME-CE are committed to provide and share European web-based geoscientific data and knowledge for technical advice to the EU Institutions while asking for a solid and effective effort for integrating geoscientific-based data in the EU policy, leading to a more sustainable energy planning and energy future.
