The EU-H2020 GEOENVI project (G.A. 818242) wants to ensure that deep geothermal energy plays its role in Europe’s future energy supply in a sustainable way, by creating a robust strategy to respond environmental concerns ( both environmental impacts and risks). This target will be achieved by 1) assessing the environmental impacts and risks of geothermal projects operational or in development in Europe, and 2) providing a robust framework to propose recommendations on environmental regulations to the decision-makers, and an adapted methodology for assessing environment impact to the project developers, and 3) communicating properly on environmental concerns with the general public. Secondly, GEOENVI aims at engaging with both decision-makers and geothermal market actors, to have the recommendations on regulations adopted and to see the LCA methodology implemented by geothermal stakeholders. The engagement with stakeholders includes to share knowledge by adopting an open and FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable) data approach.
