About the Event

The building sector is one of the most important energy consumers in Europe. Shallow Geothermal Energy offers a huge potential for energy saving, up to 70% compared to traditional heating and cooling systems.

This workshop is for:

• Representatives of Local and Regional Authorities
• Policy makers
• The building sector
• Shallow geothermal and HVAC companies

The workshop will cover:

• State of play of geothermal technology and market
• How to integrate SGE in Cities and buildings
• Structural funds for Shallow Geothermal
• Experiences of and best practices in European Cities
• Registration for geothermal systems in your region- tools from the ReGeoCities project
• Training schemes
• Repowermap – a tool to visualise your region’s renewable installations (from the Repowermap project)
• Including SGE in Energy Action Plans
