Shallow geothermal utilisation at low temperatures and depths of up to 400 meters - based on ground-source heat pumps and groundwater heat pump systems - represents a key technology for heating and cooling amongst renewables. The project Shallow Geothermal Energy Planning, Assessement and Mapping Strategies in Central Europe - GeoPLASMA-CE addresses this topic and intends to foster the market share of these techniques for heating and cooling.
The project aims at transferring knowledge from scientific experts to public authorities and related entities in the participating countries. In addition, it intends to implement shallow geothermal use in local and regional energy planning strategies in six specific pilot areas.
GeoPLASMA-CE will produce a transnational, web-based platform for knowledge transfer, which covers decision support tools for the visualisation of geothermal potentials and risks of conflicts. It furthermore implements a communication platform in order to transfer the joint knowledge to other regions of central Europe. GeoPLASMA-CE will achieve detailed energy planning strategies for the selected six pilot areas based on state of the art management concepts of shallow geothermal methods. The project will also produce harmonised transnational standards regarding the planning, assessment, management and monitoring of shallow geothermal use in central Europe.
GeoPLASMA-CE aims to foster the share of shallow geothermal use in heating and cooling strategies in central Europe. Geothermal methods are a locally available, endogenous heat source not affected by emissions, which is a present and future key technology in order to reduce emissions hazardous to climate and air quality. The project intends to create a web-based interface between geoscientific experts and public as well as private stakeholders to make the existing know-how about resources and risks associated to geothermal use accessible for territorial energy planning and management strategies in Central Europe.
