The Geo-Energy Europe (GEE) consortium, coordinated by Geoscience Ireland (GI), met recently, both in person and virtually; project partners from France, Hungary and Belgium met the GI team in Dublin, while Italian, Spanish, German and Turkish partners participated online.
This was the first in person project meeting since the beginning of strand 2 in Sept 2020 (until August 2022), due to Covid-19 travel restrictions. Partners have adapted to the circumstances of the pandemic and coordinated the project online, which has been very successful; however, meeting partners in person was very beneficial and created a great sense of teamwork and boosted moral among partners.
The GEO-ENERGY EUROPE (GEE) metacluster brings together the European know-how, technologies and experience in geo-energy, with an emphasis on its SMEs’ offer and a focus on deep geothermal energy.
GEE currently represents over 600 members, including 300+ SMEs, from 23 EU countries, and covers the entire deep geothermal value chain.
