Exploring ‘new sources of geothermal energy’

|21 November 2016|


Researchers from Europe and Mexico are to collaborate on a €20 million project which will ‘explore new sources of geothermal energy’.

The pioneering three year GEMex project will be supported by the European Commission’s Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA)

“GEMex will develop innovative methods for accessing the earth’s vast resources of heat now trapped in variable geological formations. The ultimate objective is to make this renewable energy source cost-effective and affordable both for electricity and heat production. The project will adhere to the strictest environmental standards and address issues around social acceptance of the technology,” an official announcement stated.
