The Geothermal Energy research programme is geared towards the Energy Strategy 2050. In addition to shallow geothermal energy, where the subsurface temperature evolution over many years remains a major topic, direct use geothermal energy, and the potential for production of electricity using geothermal energy are increasingly important along with exploration for and the commercially viable development and production from geothermal reservoirs.
