MEET - Multi-sites EGS Demonstration

Welcome to the MEET Project website !

The MEET Project (Multidisciplinary and multi-context demonstration of Enhanced Geothermal Systems exploration and Exploitation Techniques and potentials) aims at boosting the development of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) across Europe in various geological contexts (sedimentary, volcanic, metamorphic and crystalline) by different means.

16 partners

The MEET project has 16 partners coming from 5 different countries

10% heat to power conversion efficiency improvment

MEET will demonstrate power production at low temperature by improving up to 10% the efficiency of heat to power conversion.

1 tool to replicate the technology

MEET will bring a decision making tool to target most promising sites for near future EGS capacity installation.

1,000 million tons of CO2 saved per year

The overall CO2 saving from geothermal electricity can be in around 1,000 million tons per year.

MEET is on ZENODO

HOW TO EXPLAIN SCALING AND CORROSION FORMATION?

Picture: The test heat exchanger at Soultz-Sous-Forêts, France (Source: ES) Corrosion is a form of damage that metals can experience when in contact with certain environments. Corrosion causes the metal to degrade which can lead to reduction in strength and leaking. There are numerous corrosion forms and the type of corrosion a component experiences is…
