The Geothermal Atlas of southern Italy is a project aimed at characterizing, assessing and mapping of conventional and unconventional geothermal resources for power production in southern Italy.
The project, running between 2011 and 2016, refers to nine regions of southern Italy. The main objective is to provide maps related to the distribution and favourability of territories to host hydrothermal systems, as wells as EGS, magmatic, supercritical and geopressurized conditions exploitable for power production.
Other objectives of the projects are: data organization, and the establishment of an online geothermal database and of the geothermal portal providing data and information useful for stakeholder, in order to support regional energy policy and address societal request of information; dissemination of geothermal information and promotion of geothermal energy; analysis of environmental aspects of geothermal use in order to drive investigation, design and management practises toward potential impact minimization.
Scientific coordination of the Project: Adele Manzella, CNR - IGG
