Paper on risk governance for induced seismicity of geothermal projects
Evelina Trutnevyte and Stefan Wiemer of the SCCER-SoE task 4.1 just released a new paper in which they propose the screening tool GRID for geothermal project operators and regulators to get a sense of the extent to which induced seismicity is a concern for a specific project. Furthermore, they recommend tailor-made risk governance measures, including for example hazard and risk assessment, seismic monitoring, insurance, traffic light systems, and public and stakeholder engagement.
