    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    The Eavor Geretsried Project is the first commercial scale implementation of an innovative closed loop geothermal technology. It aims at generating baseload combined heat and power, through heat conduction transfer between rocks in the subsurface and a wellbore-isolated cycling fluid. The project will enhance the feasibility, competitiveness and scalability of the technology, by demonstrating its application to diverse geological settings. Such technology might possibly be applied to a wider range of locations compared to conventional geothermal energy.


    The objective is to support the integration of geothermal heat and power in the energy system and as a baseload source of energy with the aim to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, in line with the EU and national renewable energy targets. The project will also contribute to further innovative technologies in the energy sector and thus contribute to learning-by-doing and positive knowledge externalities.
