WP3 - Towards a European Geothermal Database


The objective is to complete the preliminary work required for the creation of a European Geothermal Database with the purpose of sharing information on legal and regulatory aspects, policies, measures, institutions, research projects and data. Statistical data on the principal parameters of geothermal energy utilization in each country need to be collected as well as a listing of multinational projects in this field. In addition, an overview of spatial databases/datasets and web services which publish information on geothermal and geology on the internet needs to be developed. Based on these results, a feasibility study - including budget estimates – for the implementation of the Database will be produced. The most appropriate instrument to support its development it will be decided through WP4 and WP7. Then, WP3 will follow-up the implementation of the European Geothermal Database.
