Large-scale "Deep" Geothermal Energy

Large-scale "Deep" Geothermal Energy

​Although Ireland does not possess high energy (high enthalpy) geothermal resources such as those in Iceland or the Azores, we do feasibly have the potential to use our resources for applications such as district heating. 

In October 2021 GSI hosted a workshop on Deep Geothermal Energy in Ireland - Past, Present and Future. The event was attended by approximately 100 people from Government, industry, and research and research funders. Presentations included an overview of recent geothermal policy developments and ongoing geothermal research projects, presentations by industry partners showcasing the skills and expertise in Ireland, and future uses of geothermal energy for district heating in Dublin.
