Geothermal energy resources can play a key role towards meeting net-zero emissions targets. There is a growing need for interdisciplinary competence to untap the vast geothermal potential worldwide, with a high level of skills transferability across geo-resource sectors, including oil and gas. This course encompasses all aspects and scales of geothermal use, from preliminary resource assessment to project implementation. The course will build up the delegates’ knowledge and understanding of geothermal technologies, their current level of maturity and international uptake.
Course Structure: 9 modules of 1½ hours each, delivered over 3 days Each day will consist of 3 modules, split into units of 1½ hours, followed by a 20 min break.
Course Level: Skill Duration: 3 days Instructor: Gioia Falcone
