European Geothermal Innovation Award


The European Geothermal Energy Council, in collaboration with the Exhibition Center Offenburg, has opened nominations for the European Geothermal Innovation Award 2018.
Nominations for the award are assessed on grounds of originality, innovation, reliability, reduction of emissions, and improvements in energy output.
Designed as an opportunity for industry peers to acknowledge innovation, and for the most exciting ideas to be widely publicised, the European Geothermal Innovation Award is the seal of excellence applied to the most intelligent and important ideas in research and industry which will play a key role in the future development of geothermal energy.
The European Geothermal Innovation Award is an initiative from the European Geothermal Energy Council in collaboration with Messe Offenburg, organisers of the GeoTHERM fair and congress.
