The European Union started the process to hardwire a -55% greenhouse gas emission reduction into the legislation before Ukraine was invaded. Whist heat decarbonisation was on the agenda there, the ensuing energy crisis and drive to replace imported fossil energy provides renewed impetus to replace fossil heating and cooling with geothermal. Sanjeev Kumar, Head of Policy at EGEC will discuss the opportunities and challenges from this Fit for 55 package and the additional measures likely to come from the REPowerEU plan. which is expected to be launched in May”.
ThinkGeoEnergy recently reported on the call by 150 companies, led by EGEC, on the European Commission to prepare a Geothermal Strategy by 2023.
