Geothermal Engineering (ETR02)

  • 1-5 July 20245 daysVienna, AustriaCourse Fee: 3650 EUR + VAT


Geothermal energy resources can play a key role towards meeting net-zero emissions targets. There is a growing need for interdisciplinary competence to untap the vast geothermal potential worldwide, with a high level of skills transferability across geo-resource sectors, including oil and gas. This course encompasses all aspects and scales of geothermal use, from preliminary resource assessment to project implementation. The course will build up the delegates’ knowledge and understanding of geothermal technologies, their current level of maturity and international uptake.

Course Level: Foundation / Skill
Instructor: Gioia Falcone
