DESTRESS findings released in CORDIS Results Pack on geothermal energy
The Community Research and Development Information Service (CORDIS) published a report about geothermal energy and a collection of EU-funded research results such as DESTRESS. The CORDIS Results Pack features brief articles on the most recent EU-funded geothermal energy projects. It covers the full spectrum of geothermal energy research and provides a holistic overview of the key priorities for further development and investment in these technologies. One of the projects presented in this report is DESTRESS.
Since 2016, DESTRESS has been developing and testing new stimulation methods for enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). These new stimulation methods would enable more efficient and sustainable use of geothermal energy while preventing induced seismic events and pollution of groundwater reservoirs. The lessons learnt during DESTRESS operations can positively influence and taken into account at other sites in future. From where the inspiration came to foster EGS and develop new stimulation methods is fully explained in the Results Pack of CORDIS.
