Activities: Geothermal energy

DYGEO: boosting support for geothermals to promote the use of this green energy

In 2018, ADEME and BRGM decided to focus on increasing the visibility of geothermal energy. First of all, this involves uniting the organisations that are promoting geothermal energy around an “advocacy campaign” for surface geothermal energy and then also of increasing the visibility of geothermal...

PETROVAL: exploiting the geothermal potential of oil wells throughout France

The PETROVAL project, carried out in the framework of the national ADEME-BRGM agreements of 2017 and 2018, made it possible to draw up an inventory of oil drilling sites and their characteristics and to set up a methodology for analysing these data, with a view to converting them for geothermal use...

DGE-Rollout: Supporting increased use of deep geothermal energy in Europe

The European DGE-Rollout project aims to support the expansion of deep geothermal energy in North-West Europe for the supply of high temperature heat in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is intended for use by industrial and agricultural companies and also thermal power plants for...

D2GRIDS: deploying new 5th generation local energy loops in North-West Europe

D2GRIDS is the acronym for "demand-driven grids". BRGM is a partner in this Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) project, coordinated by Mijnwater Ltd. which aims to develop 5th generation district heating and cooling networks (5G DHC) in Europe.

EnergICs: support to boost competitiveness in the energy sector

The BRGM is one of the 5 research organisations involved in the EnergICs project, designed to boost technological innovation on energy in micro-enterprises, SMEs and middle-market companies.

HeatStore: accelerating transfers of underground heat storage technology

The BRGM is partnering the European HeatStore project, launched in 2018 and aiming to accelerate transfers of underground heat storage technology to develop industrial applications.

DEEPEGS: deploying "improved" geothermal systems

The BRGM is partnering the DEEPEGS project, which aims to show how improved geothermal systems (EGS) can become a source of green energy in Europe.

New prospecting methods for deep geothermal resources

From 2013 to 2017, under the EU Image project on high-temperature geothermal energy, the BRGM studied the very promising contexts of Europe's sedimentary basins and underlying bedrock, securing major advances in prospecting methodology.
