The project GEOTHERM will pave the way for the exploitation of geothermal energy on a large-scale by reducing geological, technological and economic uncertainties.

This includes a detailed description of the geothermal reservoirs using state-of-the-art methods developed by the oil and gas industry.

For the first time the entire life cycle of geothermal plants is analyzed. One of the challenges, among other things, is that the salinity of the geothermal water is three to four times that of seawater which the plant’s construction materials must be able to withstand.
