The project GRETA (near-surface Geothermal REsources in the Territory of the Alpine space) aims at improving energy efficiency and sustainable production of renewable geothermal energy in the Alpine region.

GRETA is built on three specific objectives:

 - Increase the knowledge of the spatial distribution of Near-Surface Geothermal Energy (NSGE) potential in the Alpine region.

 - Exchange knowledge and best practices for the utilization of NSGE on a transnational basis.

 - Develop a knowledge base for the inclusion of NSGE in planning tools.

These objectives will be accomplished by creating geothermal potential maps which act as a decision support tool for the integration of NSGE into policy instruments, e.g. energy plans and strategies, and can be used for the spatial planning of geothermal installations by public and private stakeholders.

The principal investigator for DIATI is Prof. Rajandrea SETHI

GRETA is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the Interreg Alpine Space programme.

Support from the European Union is 2 308 232.96 €.
