Geo-energy Pilots & Demos (WP5)

The key objective of the SCCER-SoE in its Phase II is the initiation and in some case completion of demonstration projects in all areas of the our electricity supply portfolio. The work package 5 is central to the strategy of implementing the integrated approaches developed for geo-energy (WP1) and hydropower (WP2) and the innovative technologies developed in WP3 in projects conducted with industry, which serve to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed approaches.

The final objective of the innovation roadmap remains to develop by 2025 a portfolio of tested solutions to enable reaching the Energy Strategy 2050 supply targets.
