EGEC Calls for Inclusion of Geothermal Strategy in EU's Climate Target for 2040

The European Geothermal Energy Council(EGEC) welcomes the European Commission's communication on the climate target 2040. However,they say they are concerned that communication and modeling do not provide adequate coverage of the requirements for heat decarbonization and overlook the vital role of geothermal heating, cooling, electricity, storage (thermal and electrical) or sustainable lithium extraction.

The organization says, "Geothermal must be recognized as a key solution for the defossilized energy sector because it is local, abundant, sustainable and resilient from external supply-chain pressures.

"Geothermal must be recognized as a key solution for the decarbonized energy sector, a unique renewable energy.

"It is essential to accelerate the mass deployment of market-ready geothermal technologies. We call on the European Commission to bring forward the EU geothermal strategy demanded by the European Parliament, as it is essential to growing the European workforce and domestic supply chains and reducing everyone's energy costs."  

" It is impossible to meet the 2040 climate targets without mass deployment of geothermal, this unique renewable energy", says Philippe Dumas, EGEC Secretary-General. "Ignoring geothermal has resulted in an expensive and doubtful modeling exercise rather than the inclusive, rapid and cheapest pathway to climate neutrality."
