Near-surface Geothermal Resources in the Territory of the Alpine Space

Aims of Workpackage 4

This work package is devoted to the assessment and mapping of the Near-Surface Geothermal Energy (NSGE) potential, considered as the thermal load that can be sustainably exchanged with the ground by a geothermal heat pump. Ground and climate parameters and specific adopted technology are used as parameters for the assessment of NSGE potential.
