Within the frame of the project 11 researchers of the Hungarian Geological and Geophysical Institute participated in the „Geothermal Energy Overview” short course announced by the UNU-GTP Reykjavík.
During the course, the researchers gained insight into geothermal related topics, for example research methods, usage possibilities, geothermal systems, economic benefits of geothermal energy utilization, research, monitoring and environmental considerations of geothermal energy production, geothermal heating systems. During the fieldtrip examples of geothermal utilization, geothermal fields and geothermal phenomena’s were attended.

In a study for the Vecsés pilot area, a location with good geothermal potential and existing heat market, we presented how the integrated interpretation of modern geological and geophysical data can contribute to localize future drilling sites, thus to reduce risks of geological exploration.

We performed analyses of thermal waters and scale precipitations in the Alföld Region at locations of existing geothermal district heating systems. The increased knowledge on thermal water composition provided additional information for the long-term and sustainable management of these systems to manage operational problems.

The “national geothermal database” was updated and supplemented and the new harmonized data content was integrated into the national borehole register (GeoBank) of the MFGI.

15 researchers participated at the „European Geosciences Union 2017 General Assembly” and „International Multidisciplinary Conference on Mineral and Thermal Waters” conferences.

Handbooks related to geothermal energy which are available for the public at the National Geological Library were purchased as well.
