The aim of the project is to improve the cost-effectiveness, competitiveness and market penetration of geothermal electricity generation schemes, targeting both hydrothermal resources for immediate market penetration and future enhanced geothermal systems. It will attempt to develop a functioning unit with the Rankine cycle capable of producing electricity with a geothermal fluid of 65+ °C and to increase the energy efficiency (cogeneration) of this type of device. The work will proceed up to the definition of a pre-prototype.
