Mayors’ Geothermal Club (MGC) is an initiative to provide European municipalities with geothermal potential with an appropriate framework where all issues related to the utilisation of their geothermal potential can be openly discussed.
The MGC was born within the framework of the Geothermal Communities project funded under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). This initial impetus will be maintained by the active involvement of key European geothermal stakeholders, in particular the municipalities, in the next years.
The MGC will be a permanent platform allowing the European municipalities with geothermal potential keeping in touch. An MGC conference will take place every year lasting two days and addressing the most important issues on the agendas of the municipalities. These annual events will be hosted by municipalities that already have an operational geothermal based district heating system in place.
Available financial instruments for geothermal investments, opportunities under the Structural Funds, World Bank, the European Investment Bank (EIB), and other financial instruments.
Latest innovations, new technologies, experiences and best practices, solutions for municipalities.
Drilling companies, pipeline providers, heat exchanger manufacturers and other geothermal related industry.
Success stories on geothermal applications.
The main target group is European municipalities with geothermal potential. However, the Club is open to all stakeholders of the European geothermal district heating business.
