  5. 5. The EFG and the Geothermal Energy • Panel of Experts on Geothermal Energy & CO2 • Geoscientific recommendations regarding Geothermal Energy to be considered in the Seventh Framework Programme 2007 – 2013, April 2006. • EFG Position Paper on Carbon Capture and Geological Storage, January 2008 • Press release on Directive on the promotion of the use of renewable energy sources, January 2008. • The EFG together with the European Geothermal Council had a great success by lobbying the Commission, that finally modified the “Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources” and included Geothermal Heat Pumps in the group that will count as renewable for the 20% in 2020 renewable energy objective. The former draft did not differentiate between heat pump types. “Thermal energy generated by heat pumps using geothermal energy from the ground or water shall be taken into account for the purposes of paragraph 1(b).” European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359

  14. 14. GEOTRAINET Phases GEOTRAINET is divided into phases permitting to create an education programme towards a certification framework and to train geothermal installers. The work will be as follows: • Research into data currently useful for GSHP installers. • Evaluation of skills required to design, drill and install GSHP • Create curricula for designers, drillers and installers • Create training tools. Test and optimization of the products. • Suggest standards and codes to create a European market • Propose a European certification framework • Launch training courses European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
  15. 15. Curricula for GSHP geosciences and design The training of geologists or geoscientists is necessary to give them a complete GSHP competence With Knowledges on: •Environmental respect •Ground thermal condition •Technical condition To achieve these objectives it will be necessary establishment an European expert platform. This platform will work on creating a Curricula for geosciences and design, and assigning contents and programs to the work items identified in the Curricula European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
  16. 16. Assessment of geothermal data required for GSHP Involves the next activities •Inventory of data available in the Geological Surveys or other equivalent authorities •Collect and evaluate data to determine knowledge and skills required for design and installation of geothermal heating and cooling European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
  17. 17. Assessment of geothermal data required for GSHP The Geological Survey of France: BRGM will coordinate the contribution on the project from 6 national geological surveys: CGS, Czech Republic Geological Survey IGME, Spain Geological Survey PGI, Poland Geological Survey INETI, Portugal Geological Survey BGS, British Geological Survey TNO, Dutch Geological Survey European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
  18. 18. Curricula for GSHP drilling and installation An European expert platform dedicated to the drilling and installation part of a GSHP will be establish The platform of experts will define the: • Program of education, including necessary content and skills requirement to train drillers • Didactic materials to prepare the learning materials for drillers • Identification of profile and required professional experience of the teachers for the training of the trainers European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
  19. 19. Creation of necessary teaching/learning materials and of the e-learning platform The goal will be to develop best practice documentation and to create all the necessary documents to help in the training courses: •technical manuals •case studies •fact sheets •power point presentations European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
  20. 20. Creation of necessary teaching/learning materials and of the e-learning platform The e-platform will also: •Support the two platforms of experts •Support the teachers during the training courses •Permit to interchange information through partners •Permit to support other countries on training courses and to help in dissemination European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
  21. 21. Establishment of certification framework on European level and proposals for standarization Certification means that an installer has demonstrated necessary skills, knowledge and ability typically required of a practitioner to competently install, maintain a GSHP installation The levels of existing skills and knowledge expected of the people who are to be trained are: • For Designers/Planners: – Students: post graduate, more than 3 years in geology, hydrogeology, etc – Professionals: engineers, geologists, technicians with 5 years of experience • For Drillers: – Professionals with 3 years of experience – Students with background in mechanics European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
  22. 22. Direct Training 8 direct training courses: 2 for trainers, 3 for drillers and 3 for designers. In addition, two e-learning courses, one for trainers and one for designers. The evaluation system consists on two parts: a) an assessment of the skills and knowledge of the professionals having taken the course b) an evaluation questionnaire filled in by the course participants on the quality and relevance of the course c) an overall evaluation report on the training courses summarising the results of the course and the evaluation questionnaire fulfilled by the students European Federation of Geologists Rue Jenner 13, 1000 Brussels Tel: +32 2 7887636 Fax: +32 2 6477359
