Feedback : Webinaire | Geothermal projects and district heating : Experience sharing from Iceland - December 19, 2023

This webinar aimed at taking benefit from the experience of Icelandic actors regarding the geothermal energy and district heating sector. Even if Iceland has a geothermal potential drastically different from that in Belgium, similarities exist in terms of enabling legal framework, environmental and social issues, implementation of projects, operations and maintenance issues, etc. Since Iceland is a step forward in the development of geothermal projects, Icelandic companies can share success keys as well as pitfalls they have encountered.

This webinar is organized in collaboration with the Iceland Renewable Energy Cluster
