Project Identification

Full title of project: Near-surface Geothermal REsources in the Territory of the Alpine space

Project acronym: GRETA

Programme priority: Priority 2 - Low-carbon Alpine Space

Programme priority specific objective: Fostering shallow geothermal energy in the Alpine Space

Start date: 2015-12-16

Closure date: 2018-12-14

ERDF Co-Financing Rate: € 2.308.233 / 85%

Total Project Budget: € 2.962.952 (including Universität Basel, not funded by ERDF)

Project summary

The aim of the GRETA project is to demonstrate the potential of NSGE in the Alpine Space and to foster its integration into future energy plans at different administrative levels. For this purpose, transnational-congruent criteria will be defined for the efficient implementation and operation of NSGE systems. The same criteria will also be implemented to develop a spatial explicit assessment of the potential (technical, economic, environmental, social) of these systems in the Alpine region. The country-specific regulations and practices will be reviewed and the best-practice specifications will be summarized into guidelines through close interaction and continuous feedback with relevant stakeholders. The outputs of the project will serve to promote and guide the implementation of shallow geothermal energy into policy instruments, e.g., the energy plans of municipalities or planning bureaus.
