EasyGo: Efficiency and Safety in Geothermal Systems



Funding: Research Executive Agency (REA) - EU

Project duration: 2020-2024

Project Partners: TU Delft, ETH Zürich, Polimi


A fund of 3.4M€ has been awarded by the European Commission to a project on geothermal energy, that will be led by researcher Maren Brehme (TU Delft). The project entitled ‘EASYGO: Efficiency and Safety in Geothermal Operations‘ is one of the Innovative Training Networks meant for extraordinary global research as well as excellent training opportunities for PhD candidates to reach doctorate level.

Researching safe and efficient geothermal energy
Geothermal energy will play a key role in the energy transition as part of mitigating climate change. But how to operate a geothermal system in the most efficient and safe manner is one of the key challenges after a geothermal resource has been identified. EASYGO will answer that question from different perspectives, integrating geology, geophysics, geochemistry, advanced modelling and process engineering. The research is aligned with two key research questions:

How do we run geothermal systems efficiently?
How do we run geothermal systems safely?
