The European Geothermal Energy Council (EGEC) is a not-for-profit organisation promoting all aspects of the geothermal industry. It was founded in 1998 to facilitate awareness and expansion of geothermal applications in Europe and worldwide by shaping policy, improving investment conditions and steering research. Over 200 members from 30+ countries, including developers, equipment manufacturers, electricity providers, national associations, consultants, research centres, geological surveys, and public authorities gives EGEC the ability to represent the entire geothermal sector.

With 19,000 international and Danish students and over 30 study programmes in English, VIA is one of the key universities located in Denmark.  For more information visit


The EU Horizon-Europe project SAPHEA is a direct spin-off activity of the CA18219 Geothermal-DHC and aims at developing a single access-point market hub for the use of geothermal energy in heating and cooling networks. Based on prototypes, developed in CA18219 Geothermal-DHC, SAPHEA will create, among others, an early stage decision support and information tool for investors and planers in Europe. Linked to existing energy-economic tools, like ‘Hotmaps’ and ‘Geophires’, the decision support tools will also offer tools for techno-economic analyses on a pre-feasibility level for experts.

FOLIAGE, the European network for FOstering Large-scale ImplementAtion of energy GEostructure, is a collaborative effort aimed at bridging the gap between research and policy in adopting Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). By engaging decision-makers, engineers, citizens, and EU institutions, FOLIAGE promotes EGS principles and disseminates results to key stakeholders across 22 countries. This diverse consortium, comprising experts from academia, local authorities, HVAC installers, and implementation partners, facilitates the transition of EGS from isolated projects to impactful solutions at city scale.

The French Association of Geothermal Professionals (AFPG) was created on 15 June 2010 in Paris. It brings together over one hundred companies representing geothermal energy-related professions in France: energy professionals, drillers, heat pump manufacturers and installers, equipment manufacturers, heat network operators, etc. As of 2018, it is divided into two areas: surface geothermal energy and deep geothermal energy.
