Organic Rankine Cycle installation in Vermilion site (Chaunoy, France)

A part of MEET project consists in the the demonstration of electricity and thermal power generation from various geological contexts. Six demonstration sites were selected based on temperature, flow and geological environment. The first demonstration sites are Chaunoy (France, sedimentary geological context), Soultz-sous-Forêts (France, granitic geological context) and Reykjanes (Iceland, volcanic geological context).  On these…

Göttingen demonstration site

The UGOE along with UEG are currently involved in the conversion of the University’s natural gas power plant that supplies the campus with heating, into a geothermal power station. To do this, we must first understand what the subsurface looks like at around 5000m depth, as this is where we expect to reach the target…

Heat exchanger test at Soultz-sous-Forêt EGS power plant

In order to quickly boost deep geothermal energy production, MEET project is aiming at valorising low temperature resources in existing subsurface facilities. Regarding EGS power plants, MEET envisions to extract more energy by reinjecting the brine at lower temperature. In that framework MEET is working on Soultz-sous-Forêts power plant which is currently reinjecting at an…
