Bloomberg: "New projects will bring the number around the French capital to about 40 by the end of this year"

Geothermal district heating is making a comeback in the City of Light.

After several decades of little to no development, geothermal is doing a comeback. According to Bloomberg, “the project is one of five around the French capital being built by Engie, the new name for GDF Suez SA, accelerating a geothermal boom in the region.”

The same source details that new projects and wells at Rosny-sous-Bois are being developed at the moment, along with nearby projects in Noisy-le-Sec and Montreuil. Thanks to both public and private investment, other projects in Villejuif, Chevilly-Larue and L’Hay-les-Roses are also flourishing or being refurbished/expanded like the Noisy-le-Sec geothermal heating plant which is projected to double in capacity in 2016.
