26th January 2023 - Matchmaking workshop - Industry meets academia

Presentations and pdfs from the day can be seen here:


We invite all interested parties in a one-day complimentary event where academic researchers in the field of geothermal energy meet the industry. The purpose is to build stronger consortias, share ideas and needs, and to create relevant research and development projects.

Welcome all to:

Epicenter - Disruption Hall. Edvard Storms gate 2, 0166 Oslo. https://weareepicenter.com/oslo/

26th January 2023 from 0930 - 1430.

An accellerated development of geothermal solutions in Norway is required for a more effective use of electric energy. Savings up to 35 TWh/year (or more?) for heating and cooling purposes in existing buildings can be technical feasible with ground source heat pumps in Norway. Internationally, the use of underground heat can produce electric energy as base load in integrated energy systems. Any energy not spent, is entirely conflict free and the solutions proposed here are areal effective, local and thus saves Nature. The freed up, and additionally produced electrical energy, aids the electrification of the energy sector - desperately needed to reach the +1.5°C target.

In this workshop the industry, that performs energy mappping, design solutions, develop and operate such geothermal technologies meet up with academia. Large building owners are invited in to participate. Research proposals are pitched, and the industry and owners are welcome to pitch in their research need.
