This paper reports a multinational approach to develop an Enhanced Geothermal System reservoir (EGS) in Europe. The pilot site is located at the French-German border in Soultz-sous-Forêts, France. Over two decades research and development have been carried out with French, German and Swiss governmental and European funding. The on-going Soultz project is now very close to the end of the pilot plant phase (2009). Then, a geothermal power plant constructing phase started in 2007 with the building… CONTINUE READING
