Shallow geothermal energy represents a well-developed, non-volatile and clean technology for providing efficient heating and cooling across Europe. It is often associated with the use of ground source heat pumps, but offers a wide range of applications such as geo-cooling or seasonal heat storage. Still, it is widely considered as a niche technology, however it has the potential to become a powerful game changer towards a decarbonized heating and cooling technology. The next decade from 2021 until 2030 is crucial to fulfil the SDGs defined in the “Clean Energy for all Europeans” initiative of the European Commission.
The Shallow Geothermal Energy Days aim at connecting policy makers to scientists, to promote and discuss opportunities for boosting this technology in the upcoming decade. We invite you to join this event, raise your voice and learn more about shallow geothermal energy in Europe!
