The Alterenergy Strategic Project at the workshop on geothermal energy in Croatia

The Alterenergy project, represented by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, was presented during the workshop on geothermal energy “Status and future in the Peri-Adriatic Area” which took place in the Lošinj island  in Croatia, on 25th-27th August 2014. 

The workshop was an opportunity to share pilot projects and technology advancements on geothermal energy and sustainable energy planning with researchers, enterprises and policy makers. Several pilot projects on small and big scale geothermal energy and heat pumps in Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Greece, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and Bosnia and Herzegovina were discussed, including technical features and financial assessment.

During the workshop the overall objectives of the Alterenergy project were introduced as well as the results achieved so far. The presentation discussed demonstrative actions of energy sustainable  communities that are being  implemented in Albania where schools of the Lushnje e Lezha regions will benefit technical and financial support, as well as in the Municipality of Sant’Agata in Puglia (Italy).

Also the example of two sustainable communities were described in details: Forni di Sopra (Italy), a best practice example of energy sustainable community for district  heating  and  bioenergy sustainable short supply chain implementation and Brda (Slovenia), where there is a plan to implement a district heating network fed by geothermal  sources.
