Geothermal Direct Use

Approximately 50% of energy consumption in the EU comes from space heating and cooling. Heating represents the largest part of this load and by transitioning away from fossil fuels towards renewable resources, such as geothermal, CO2 emissions could be cut significantly. The session will give insight into the potential impact of direct utilization of geothermal energy on energy security, greenhouse gas emissions, improved quality of life, and lower heating costs.
