Demonstration of soft stimulation treatments of geothermal reservoirs
DESTRESS demonstrated soft stimulation treatments of geothermal reservoirs, expanded knowledge and provided solutions for the economical, sustainable and environmentally responsible exploitation of underground heat.
DESTRESS demonstrated methods used in enhanced geothermal systems (EGSs). The aim was to expand knowledge and to provide solutions for a more economical, sustainable and environmentally responsible exploitation of underground heat. EGSs allow the enormous untapped potential of geothermal energy to be put to widespread use. DESTRESS improved the understanding of technological, business and societal opportunities and risks related to geothermal energy. Existing and new project sites had been chosen to demonstrate the DESTRESS concept.
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under grant agreement No 691728
