MEET - A European task force for developing EGS in Europe
The MEET project (Multidisciplinary and multi-context demonstration of Enhanced Geothermal Systems exploration and Exploitation Techniques and potentials) aims at demonstrating the EGS (Enhanced Geothermal Systems) application on different geological contexts, through Europe, using several demonstration sites with an economical aspect. MEET brings together 16 European partners (Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany, and Iceland): Industrials, small and medium enterprises, research institutes and universities, but also several geothermal demonstration sites in Europe located in the various geological environments. The main objective of MEET is to capitalize on the exploitation of the widest range of fluid temperature in EGS (Enhanced geothermal systems) plants and abandoned oil wells. The aim is to demonstrate the lower cost of small-scale production of electricity and heat in wider areas with various geological environments (crystalline, sediment, metamorphic, volcanic).
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 792037
