In this newspiece we would like to share with you the updates on MEET Project.
The MEET Project (Multidisciplinary and multi-context demonstration of Enhanced Geothermal Systems exploration and Exploitation Techniques and potentials) aims at boosting the development of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) across Europe in various geological contexts (sedimentary, volcanic, metamorphic and crystalline) by different means.
The NGAP Webinar series spans over 3 days (October 7, 14, 21) of mini-conference (2 hrs each day) where latest topics on Digital Applications, Operational Challenges and Drilling are presented by colleagues from the Geothermal industry in the Philippines and New Zealand.
Learn how supervised machine learning helps in well output estimation, advances in online scale dissolution reduces injection wells downtime, and drilling benchmarking and technologies reduce drilling costs.

Parhelion is an energy and climate risk finance company specialising in non-traditional risk issues impacting investment in to clean energy and climate finance markets. Parhelion has developed a Geothermal Resource Risk Insurance that covers a pre-determined number of wells with a pre-agreed drilling and testing schedule. It is designed to be flexible to an individual project’s needs.
We invite yout to participate in the IGC webinar “Risk finance for geothermal resource development” that takes place on 4 September 2020. Julian Richardson (Parhelion) and Alexander Richter (Thinkgeoenergy) will discuss the company’s efforts to insure geothermal projects and climate finance.

Contribute to the Energy Transition and get the chance to present your innovative research at GET2020!
The 1st Geoscience & Engineering in Energy Transition Conference (GET) is cross-disciplinary by design. The audience will be composed by geoscientists and engineers working on all subsurface usages, either relevant to energy transition (geothermal and storage) or more traditional resource exploitation; representatives of universities and research institutions, geological surveys, local and national authorities and regulators, petroleum operators and energy utilities, field service and consulting firms are offered a platform to exchange views and experience.

After vetting bids from various countries to be the next Global WING Team, previous Global Chair Andy Blair said “I am excited to hand over the chair of the organization for the next 3 years to an energetic and talented group of women and men in the United States.”
The new US-based WING Global team is busy preparing the new roadmap, setting objectives for the organization during their 3-year tenure, which will conclude at the World Geothermal Congress in China (planned for 2023). While continuing to focus on connecting its members and increasing WING’s membership and visibility, the updated roadmap includes initiatives to mobilize more members to actively participate in WING opportunities, ensuring that WING is a sustainable force into the future. “It has been inspiring to plan the next era of WING,” says Ann Robertson-Tait, the new WING Global Chair. “We have been working closely with the New Zealand team to define the future path of the organization. WING has come a long way in the short time since its formation, and we have developed exciting plans for its future!”

We would like to share this fantastic news from our member AGEOCOL with the entire geothermal community:
Under the slogan “Earth Sciences for Society”, the International Geoscience Programme (IGCP) of UNESCO announced last days the approval of the second version of the IGCP-636 project: Geothermal Resources for Energy Transition.
IGCP-636 is an international project of cooperation and scientific, technological and social innovation in the field of geothermal energy. The first version of the project worked under the title: “Unifying international research forces to unlock and strengthen geothermal exploitation of the Americas and Europe”.
From the present year 2020 and until the year 2024, the UNESCO IGCP-636 project will be led by Colombia through Dr. Daniela Blessent of the University of Medellin and current president of AGEOCOL.
The project team is joined by 21 organizations from 15 different countries. For Colombia, the Colombian Geological Survey (SGC), the Colombian Geothermal Association (AGEOCOL), the University of Medellin (UDEM), and the Colombian Section of WING (Women in Geothermal) will participate.
The main objective of the IGCP-636 project is to promote the use of geothermal resources as a sustainable energy product through
1) increasing the knowledge and understanding of deep geothermal systems 2) conduct outreach activities with focus groups and communities; and 3) promote the installation of geothermal heat pumps.
From AGEOCOL we happily share this great achievement, which we are sure will bring progress and learning to continue promoting the use of energy on our planet.

On 18-19 February 2020, the final conference of the European-Mexican cooperation GEMex Project took place at the GFZ. The coordinators of the project, Aída López-Hernández (Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, UMSNH) and David Bruhn (Helmholtz-Centre Potsdam, GFZ) welcomed 125 guests from 15 different countries. They were greeted not only by the administrative director of GFZ, Dr. Stefan Schwartze, but also by the Mexican Ambassador to Germany Rogelio Granguillhome Morfín.
During the two days of the conference, almost all project partners presented their results from 3.5 years of research on Enhanced Geothermal Systems and Superhot Geothermal Systems. Since the conference was open to the public, the 72 contributions were presented to interested stakeholders and the wider geothermal community as well as project partners from 30 different research institutions and geothermal associations.
The conference demonstrated the effort the consortium dedicates to the integration of results from the different disciplines of geology, geochemistry, geophysics and various modelling approaches in order to reach the two ultimate project goals. First, to better understand the superhot geothermal system in Los Humeros in order to propose a concept for the utilisation of this geothermal resource additional to the conventional resources. Second, to design a stimulation test in Acoculco in order to develop a concept for a first Engineered Geothermal System in Mexico.
The conference proceedings are online and the full conference contributions can be downloaded from the GEMex website.
