The GEOHEX project has been running since 2019 and, with the first prototypes now being tested, you can stay updated on progress by subscribing to our newsletter.
Geothermal power has the capability to stabilise the fluctuations in the grid associated with other, more intermittent, renewable energy sources.
While the initial and ongoing operating costs can be high, the project team are working to address this issue through the optimisation of the heat exchangers used by geothermal power plants.
Of course, any components used are threatened by the harsh environments associated with geothermal power resources, which can lead to scaling and corrosion and creating high costs for operation and maintenance.
GEOHEX has been developing heat exchanger materials that are not only able to better withstand the harsh environments but also offer greater efficiencies. Not only is this project work significantly reducing the cost of geothermal plant operations but is also contributing to the strengthening of EU leadership on renewables for the future.
