Geological Survey Ireland is focussed on geothermal energy and carbon capture and storage.

In fulfilment of a commitment under the Climate Action Plan for Ireland (2019), GSI has published An Assessment of Geothermal Energy for District Heating in Ireland. This is a technical document that provides current status of this sector and a summary of geothermal research to date. It also identifies the potential opportunities, barriers and knowledge gaps that will be addressed by our new geothermal programme.
This work will support the policy and regulatory work currently being developed by the Geoscience Policy Unit in DECC.
In conjunction with the technical document, DECC have also published Geothermal Energy in Ireland; a roadmap for a policy and regulatory framework.
