Side events are not part of the main congress programme. Please contact the relevant organiser for more information.

Novel Developments in Radial Water Jet Drilling

When: Wednesday 12th June, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Where: Room South America

The H2020 EC-funded Project SURE (Novel Productivity Enhancement Concept for a SUstainable Utilization of a Geothermal REsource) invites all interested to this side event within the framework of the EGC. The topic will be to present and discuss the project’s progress as well as challenges and opportunities of Radial Water Jet Drilling as stimulation technology in geothermal energy systems.

For more information on the topic please visit us at the EGC joint booth of “European research and demonstration projects” or at the SURE project website.

Workshop on Shallow Geothermal Mapping

When: Wednesday 12th June, 16:00 – 18:00

Room: Central America


Several projects on EU-level, bi-national, national and regional levels are working on the­matic online maps for shallow geothermal application. Topics addressed include geological and environmental issues, drillability, thermal conductivity, regulatory items etc. This Workshop is destined to bring representatives from the different projects together for an update on their respective work and for seeking alignment and synergies among the different approaches. The workshop is organised by project GEOCOND, in cooperation with other EU-projects. Participation is on invitation only!

If you are working in shallow geothermal mapping and have not received an invitation, or are interested in attending the workshop for other reasons, please contact the organiser:

Geothermal Technology Workshop (RHC-ETIP)

When: Thursday 13th June, 10:30 – 12:30 AM

Room: Central America

The upcomingGeothermal Technology Workshop organized by the RHC Geothermal Panel will  be held on Thursday 13th June from 10,30 to 12,30 AM in The Hague, during the EGC 2019 Conference. The discussion will focus on the research priorities for the sector in the coming years in preparation for the new Strategic Research Agenda to 2030 for research and innovation in Geothermal Heating and Cooling.

It will be an occasion to further discuss the current developments and new dynamics of the geothermal industry and engage with other experts in the field.

The platform recently launched a consultation on Research Priorities for Heating and Cooling. See here for more information.
