Presented by Dr. Luca Guglielmetti, University of Geneva
A 60-90 minute talk on 'Geothermal Energy: Opportunities Beyond Energy Production'. Summary: Geothermal energy is a renewable and flexible energy source with a broad variety of application spanning from power generation to heat production and storage. Covering a broad range of temperature, geothermal resource can also provide a clean supply of energy to the food supply chain and the number of commercial projects in increasing globally. From greenhouses to aquacolture, from beer to dairy processing, food dying and spirulina, these are only some of of the application of geothermal energy in the agri-food sector. This talk will provide an overview of geothermal energy, it's applications in complex energy systems and will provide insights on it's role in decarbonizing and creating new market opportunities in the agri-food sector.
