The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) Joint Programme on Geothermal Energy (JPGE) aims at providing an outstanding contribution to meet the EU's climate and energy policy targets for 2020 and beyond, through the large scale deployment of the clean and efficient base-load power supplied by the indigenous geothermal resources.
The International Geothermal Association (IGA) is a scientific, educational and cultural organization. Its objectives are to encourage research, development and utilization of geothermal resources worldwide through the compilation, publication and dissemination of scientific and technical data and information.
The GeConnect project has been subsidized through the ERANET Cofund GEOTHERMICA (Project no. 731117), from the European Commission, Technology Development Fund (Iceland), Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) on the basis of a decision by the German Bundestages (Germany), and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland).
