CEN Workshop on 'Design and installation guidelines for a building retrofitting concept based on EGS (enhanced geothermal systems)

The scope of the Workshop is to develop specific guidelines that aid to the viable and cost effective use of advanced EGS by introducing a novel concept on building retrofitting based on geothermal energy and EGS, through the integration and validation of a suite of technologies, tools and methods facilitating their easy application and massive deployment.

This workshop is motivated by the currently ongoing Horizon 2020 GEOFIT project (Deployment of novel GEOthermal systems, technologies and tools for energy efficient building retroFITting), whose general objective is the implementation of a global, effective, energy-efficient retrofitting strategy for the stock of existing buildings in Europe, boosting the adoption of appropriate geothermal based energy-efficient building retrofitting technologies and methods.


The consortium of the GEOFIT H2020 project, funded by the EU, has been working during 4 years on an integrated industrially driven action Building Energy Management System aimed at the deployment of cost effective enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) on energy efficient building retrofitting. This action includes the use of 5 demonstration sites as open case studies in 4 CEN member states and corresponding different climates, featuring different representative technical scenarios/business models.


The creation of this CEN Workshop was identified by the project consortium as a very useful way to disseminate the GEOFIT project findings and results, in accordance with the dissemination activities carried out to facilitate the acceptance and utilization by the market of the developed solutions through the interaction with the standardization system.

The deliverable of the Workshop will be a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) on 'Design and installation guidelines for a building retrofitting concept based on EGS (enhanced geothermal systems)'.


The kick-off meeting will be held on 2022-03-29,Tuesday, from 09:00- 12:30 CET as a web meeting. People interested to participate in the kick-off meeting can contact abenedicto@une.org.


All interested parties are invited to submit comments on the draft Project Plan to the Workshop secretary, Mrs. Ana Benedicto (abenedicto@une.org), by 29 March 2022. You are kindly requested to use the commenting form below.
