GeoSmart and the European Electricity Market

Wed, 15 December, 2021

The GeoSmart project consortium has produced a document investigating how geothermal power plants connect to the European electricity market.

Including how national electricity monopolies have been joined together to create a Europe-wide electricity grid structure, the document details how geothermal works alongside coal, oil, nuclear, gas, and renewable sources to create a wider energy mix.

As an electricity market that puts more value on ­flexibility and renewable emerges, geothermal power plants not only offer a solution to these emerging trends but should also profit from the value they create in the continental electricity grid.
