Energy from the earth: Deep geothermal as a resource for the future?
More information about our new study on deep geothermal energy.
The “Energy from the Earth” project was led by Stefan Hirschberg of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). For this detailed study, which yielded a 450-page report, he coordinated the work of a total of 32 scientists from the PSI, the Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ), the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) and the Dialogik research institute. As well as analysing fundamental geological conditions and the technical, economic and environmental aspects of geothermal energy, the study considers the legal framework and assesses public attitudes to this novel energy resource.
