The GeoAtlantic project aims to promote the use of geothermal energy in the communities through the joint development of tools and methodologies that make possible the creation of favourable local ecosystems, both for heat and power.
The general objective of this project is to develop cooperation methodologies and tools in order to jointly create the neccessary conditions to encourage the energy transition in the Atlantic Area by boosting local geothermal resources.
The improvement of cooperation between private and public actors and researchers will be pursued through the articulation of the value chain of geothermal energy in the communities and the local territories. With this aim, the development of local policy frameworks and support tools will be promoted to encourage the energy transition and the promotion of geothermal energy, as well as the empowerment of the communities and local authorities to provide an effective response from the energy point of view to the threat of climate change and the construction of a new energy model.
