Unleash the potential for geothermal energy

Time

08:15 - 19:00

Venue

Forum Fribourg

On 21st of September 2021, the Swiss geothermal energy forum «Connect» will take place, with an international dimension. The aim is to raise the visibility of the different forms of geothermal energy and to strengthen the connections among the different value chain stakeholders. Over 300 participants from Switzerland and abroad are expected. Be part of it and shape the future of a decarbonized society with geothermal energy.

The earth provides lasting heat: a dormant sustainable energy potential beneath our feet. By 2050, geothermal energy can cover at least 25% of Switzerland‘s heating needs in a CO2-neutral way: a contribution to the energy transition and the reduction of Carbon dioxide emissions. A new value chain with regional jobs is created.

Be part of it and become actor of the energy transition
The deployment of geothermal systems on a large scale requires cooperation between actors from different sectors. Research and development is still needed for some systems. Others are mature and at the market threshold. And many products, services and technologies are already widely used. The use of different geothermal systems differs from one region to another and the knowledge of the subsoil and the legislation are more or less favourable in different countries. Thus, exchanges of experience and knowledge between regions and among actors in the different sectors involved will accelerate the development of the emerging geothermal value chain.

Market for national and international cooperation
The forum is a marketplace for effective connections between authorities (framework conditions), industry (implementation) universities (newest knowledge) and corporates and investors (funding) to unleash the geothermal potential. On the forum platform www.connect4geothermal.ch participants define their profile of interest with their specific knowledge, experience, technologies, products and services. All participants can browse these profiles and select in advance who they are interested to meet 1to1 during the forum. Before the event, everyone receives their personal meeting schedule. This enables effective networking to facilitate integration of partial solutions into complete systems. The new platform will remain online after the event and animated with further activities to facilitate exchanges.

Firsthand information on projects and international trends
Speakers representing economics, authorities and research with experts from geology, energy, environment, urban development will present actual projects and discuss international trends in plenary and interactive parallel sessions. Themes covered are heat and cold in urban areas as well as for industry and agriculture, storage of energy with the subsoil, electricity generation, lithium extraction and CO2 capture as well as better knowledge to protect and use the underground resources.
