Innovation for De-Risking Enhanced Geothermal Energy Projects
Seismic risk reduction and reservoir efficiency are EGS reservoir's key coupled problems. Balancing risk and economic output is a key requirement in EGS systems. DEEP executes an ambitious work program that leverages on national efforts, bringing ongoing and planned, but currently fragmented initiatives together into a coherent international effort towards the ultimate goal of de-risking future geothermal projects worldwide. DEEP has a strong focus on optimization of monitoring and risk assessment procedures in order to reduce commercial costs to future projects.
