Decarbonising cities with geothermal district heating: how to finance it?



The 13 December 2019 from 09:00 until 13:00


Brussels, Belgium

This seminar is organised as a partnership between the European geothermal industry and European local authorities committed to the energy transition to facilitate the uptake of this clean renewable energy technology. In particular, this workshop organized in the framework of the GEORISK project and the HeatNet NWE project in association with the Covenant of Mayors aims at best answering the following issues:

  • Role of local planning in enabling RES investments, notably for heating and cooling
  • Impact of local authorities in enabling the business model of geothermal projects
  • Barriers to deploying geothermal district heating and cooling projects
  • Policy solutions for facilitating deployment of geothermal district heating and cooling
  • Financing geothermal projects

The HeatNet NWE Project is co-funded by the EU Interreg North-West Europe Programme.
