PIXIL and GEO-URBAN organize a successful event about geothermal energy

Both PIXIL and GEO-URBAN projects organized a Workshop entitled "Exploring the subsoil in search of geothermal energy. A local and global perspective" on January 28 and 29, 2021.

This event was of great importance for the geothermal field since issues such as the state of this renewable energy in the European Union and large-scale projects were discussed, as well as many important geothermal projects on a local scale and success case studies.

Josep de la Puente (BSC), Margarita de Gregorio (GeoPlat) and Emmanuelle Robins (Pole AVENIA) led the event in which essential representatives of European institutions and organizations participated, such as Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions - GDG, European Geothermal Energy Council - EGEC , Instituto  para la Diversificación y Ahorro de la Energia - IDAE, Ministry for an ecological Transition, DG Energy and Climate, Association Française des Professionnels de la Géothermie – AFPG, Bureau de Recherche Géologique et Minière - BRGM, European Geothermal Energy Council - EGEC, Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya - ICGC; Clúster de l'Energia Eficient de Catalunya - CEEC, TLS Geothermics, Cardial Recursos Alternativos, Cyopsa-Sisocia, E.ON Energilösningar AB, QUALI Geotermia, Grup de Treball de Geotèrmia - GTG, Ente Vasco de Energy-EVE
