The GeoSEE project involves 16 partners from 8 countries and will run for 24 months between December 2012 and December 2014. From a technological point of view, GeoSEE intends to demonstrate that innovative and sustainable uses of low-temperature (also called low-enthalphy) geothermal resources (less than 150°C) are possible when they are combined with further renewable sources to provide solutions for heating or cooling and electricity production. These hybrid uses will contribute to making the utilization of lower temperature geothermal fluids more economically viable and reduce business risk thus improving market pull and attracting private investors.
The project is funded under the 4th call for proposal of the South-East Europe Programme (www.southeast-europe.net). The Bulgarian representative in this project is the Regional Energy Agency of Pazardjik in partnership with the Pazardzhik Regional Administration which is an Associated Strategic Partner (ASP) in GeoSEE.
