CHPM2030: Combined Heat, Power and Metal extraction
Deep geothermal energy
Low environmental impact
Extraction of geothermal energy helps to satisfy Europe’s energy needs. In this aspect, deep geothermal energy will be a key technology.
Mineral extraction from the geothermal fluid will decrease the import dependency of Europe and justify the economics of deep geothermal or EGS systems.
Geothermal energy production has a minimal effect on the environment. The additional close-circuit metal extraction will generate much less environmental impact than the traditional surface or underground mining.
"CHPM2030 aims to develop a novel and potentially disruptive technology solution that can help satisfy the European needs for energy and strategic metals in a single interlinked process".
The European Union’s Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is the most important policy event dedicated to EU sustainable energy policy. Sessions are organised by the European Commission and energy stakeholders to debate policy developments and best practices on sustainable...read more
The British Geological Survey (BGS) organised a fieldtrip in Cornwall (UK) for the CHPM2030 partners to study the Cornubian granite province, its mineralisation history and geothermal potential. The fieldtrip started on the 22nd of May and ended on the 24th. On the...read more
Participants of the CHPM2030 project will attend the geothermal conference “The impact of EU R&D funding – A 20 year perspective on EU R&D funding for geothermal energy“ on 13 June 2018 in Brussels. This conference organised by the European Commission will provide...read more
