The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC-ETIP) has launched a call for experts to join the following Horizontal Working Groups (HWGs): (more…)

The public consultation on the first draft of the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for Deep Geothermal has been launched.

The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda identifies future research needs and priorities for the deep geothermal sector and it will lay the basis for upcoming calls of European and National programmes as the next Horizon Europe programme. The contribution of the geothermal sector is therefore essential.

How to provide inputs

The complete document (pdf) is publicly available below, while working documents (word with track changes) for inputs are available to ETIP-DG members in the members area under the Bulletin BoardsPlease use the working documents, with track changes activated, to provide your inputs: comments and additions for chapters A to F, and proposals for the next generation of technologies (chapter G) .

We invite inputs on the draft until the 21/11/2018 COB. Please send your inputs, in track changes, to info@etip-dg.eu.

There will be an opportunity to discuss the Strategic Research Agenda during an online webinar that will be organised early December 2018.

We wish to sincerely thank the Steering Committee, the Working Group leaders and the members of the ETIP-DG Working Groups for their work and contribution to the document.

Candidatures are open for 1 vacant position for the Steering Committee of the ETIP-DG (European Technology & Innovation Platform on Deep Geothermal) 2017-2020.

The Steering Committee is the highest decision-making body of the ETIP-DG. Its primary aim is to provide guidance concerning the activities of the Platform, ensuring that the ETIP-DG’s other bodies and working groups effectively pursue the ultimate mission of the ETIP-DG. (more…)

The European Geothermal RD&I Document Search Engine – EGRISE is now online. It is a new tool available in the ETIP-DG Members Area for data collection, organisation, and sharing. It supports ETIP-DG members on the drafting of the strategic documents, in particular the Strategic Research Agenda and the Roadmap, and in the identification of the most relevant research priorities.

The library includes deliverables from geothermal projects gathered from the European Commission portal and projects’ websites, collected in an organised catalogue using the ZENODO data repository. Its purposes are:
  • to describe RD&I in the deep geothermal sector also from a historical perspective
  • to retrieve all the necessary information for highlighting success stories and gaps
  • data organization
  • to provide a framework for data access, retrieve and query

The documents accessible through the platform have been categorized in relation to the ETIP-DG Working Groups (i.e., exploration, drilling, production, surface systems / generation, environmental and non technical), so that documents can be easily filtered out by category.Documents can also be filtered by Funding Programme, Project Title and Documents type.
Clicking on a document brings up the document’s Summary Page, where the user has an overview of the main document metadata , including keywords, abstract and download links.

IF AN AUTHOR OR MORE THEN ONE REPUTES THAT THE DOCUMENT MUST NOT BE REPUBLISHED AND OR MUST NOT HAVE A DOI IDENTIFICATION CAN REQUEST THE REMOVAL FROM THE EUROPEAN GEOTHERMAL RD&I DOCUMENT SEARCH ENGINE – EGRISE BY MAILING TO info@etip-dg.eu

ETIP-DG MEMBERS WHO WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE EUROPEAN GEOTHERMAL RD&I DOCUMENT SEARCH ENGINE (EGRISE) CAN UPLOAD DOCUMENTS. TO THIS AIM GUIDELINES ARE PREPARED TO CORRECTLY UPLOAD AND DESCRIBE WITH METADATA THE DOCUMENTS ON EGRISE’S BACKEND, WHICH IS THE ZENODO REPOSITORY. HOW TO UPLOAD A DOCUMENT ON EGRISE

The DG ETIP project, supporting the activities of the ETIP-DG, has released two documents analysing the policy and regulatory framework for the deep geothermal and highlighting the strategic priorities for the upcoming decades. (more…)

The ETIP-DG Annual Conference 2018 will take place on Tuesday 19th June, in Brussels, Belgium. This full day event will present and assess the work carried out by the platform so far and further its work for the development of the Strategic Research Agenda.

Environmental Working Group

The following day, on Wednesday 20th June, the first meeting of the Environmental Working Group (cross-sectional sub-group of the Non-Technical WG) will take place. The working group will focus on technological and non-technical challenges related to environmental issues and RD&I activities.

More information will follow. In the meantime, please save the date.

Members of the ETIP-DG can already pre-register for both events in the Members Area of the website.

The 6th Stakeholders Meetings will take place on Tuesday 27th and Thursday 29th March 2018 in Italy, in conjunction with the DESCRAMBLE final conference and the GEMex informative event. These meetings are fundamental for the definition of the Strategic Research Agenda, one of the pillars of the work of the ETIP. During the meetings we will define RD&I priorities for deep geothermal in the upcoming years, with a focus on vision, problems, aims & challenges. We will also assign a responsible person per item, a contribution which will be credited and recognised at the presentation of the document. Please note the schedule of the working groups meetings you would like to attend:

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the Establishment of the Innovation Fund (policy field: Climate Action). The objective of the consultation is to provide the wide public and stakeholders with an opportunity to express their views on the elements relevant for the establishment of the Innovation Fund. It also serves to gather input (data and factual information, expert views) from industry, academia and other interested stakeholders on specific elements, such as key innovation challenges, expectations and financing needs of potential beneficiaries, that need to be considered when designing the Innovation Fund Ensure that all affected and interested stakeholders are represented.

All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from:

The consultation period ends on the 10th of April 2018. More on the European Commission Portal.
