News No.1(December 2012) Project start

Monitoring Committee has confirmed the approval of GeoSEE project application for co-financing by the South East Europe (SEE) Program. Official start date of project is: 14th of December, 2012.

 

Summary
The GeoSEE project involves 16 partners from 8 countries and will run for 24 months between December 2012 and December 2014. From a technological point of view, GeoSEE intends to demonstrate that innovative and sustainable uses of low-temperature (also called low-enthalphy) geothermal resources (less than 150°C) are possible when they are combined with further renewable sources to provide solutions for heating/cooling and electricity production. These hybrid uses will contribute to making the utilization of lower temperature geothermal fluids more economically viable and reduce business risk thus improving market pull and attracting private investors.
