The next meeting of the GRETA partners will take place in Bolzano (Italy), in April 17 and 18. Many researches and events occurred since the mid-term conference in Salzburg (Austria). This new meeting will be the opportunity for the partners to discuss a methodology for the integration of near surface geothermal energy into local energy plans, based on the experience of the ongoing activities in the 3 pilot areas (Val d’Aoste, Cerkno, Oberallgäu district).
