Transforming abandoned wells for geothermal energy production
The fossil fuels industry is declining in central Europe and leaves behind countless gas and oil wells. The TRANSGEO project is turning this environmental problem into an opportunity: it investigates the potentials of such abandoned infrastructures for producing and storing green geothermal energy. The partnership develops a transnational strategy and regional action plans to give a second life to the wells and tests their repurposing potential in local pilot actions.
of the Budget is funded by ERDF

The German Geothermal Congress 2023
The EU co-funded project TRANSGEO will be presented at the Germany's largest geothermal energy congress in Essen, Germany on Wednesday, 18th October at 4:10pm. Project aims to investigate how abandoned wells and infrastructure from declining oil and gas production can be used for geothermal applications. You are welcome!
