DEEP is subsidised through the Cofund GEOTHERMICA together with the European Commission and by various National Funding Agencies.


GEOTHERMICA's objective is to combine the financial resources and know-how of geothermal energy research and innovation programme owners and managers from 16 countries and their regions. Together with financial support from the European Commission GEOTHERMICA launches joint projects that demonstrate and validate novel concepts of geothermal energy deployment within the energy system, and that identify paths to commercial large-scale implementation. GEOTHERMICA targets innovation in the way geothermal energy supply and integrates into Europe's energy system of the future. For more information visit the GEOTHERMICA website.

This project is part of GEOTHERMICA's second call. The GEOTHERMICA’s second call’s objective is to launch projects that accelerate the piloting, demonstration and validation of novel concepts of geothermal energy supply within the energy system and to identify paths to commercially viable deployment. Projects may also address oriented research that underpins novel concepts and paths to commerciality.
