Description

GeoAtlantic’s main objective is to promote the use of geothermal energy in communities, through the joint development of tools and methodologies that allow the implementation of friendly local ecosystems, both for electrical and thermal energy. In this sense, actions will be taken in order to improve the knowledge and capacities of the different actors, in support of technology transfer, as well as in the implementation of local policies and pilot demonstrations of the use of geothermal energy.

EnergyLab's Tasks

EnergyLab  performed the following tasks:

  • Identification of geothermal technologies with potential for the territory that is the object of the project
  • Creation of partnerships between research centers and technology providers
  • Monitoring, follow-up and analysis of demonstration projects and
  • Dissemination and disclosure activities.
