The objective of this project is to develop a planning instrument for the optimisation of utilisation of geothermal sources for energy supply, thermal spa facilities and health resorts in accordance with the local market conditions and financing requirements.
The experiences and knowledge of internationally renowned Austrian experts in the field of geothermal facility planning serve as basis for the process development.

Investment costs as well as the related operating costs for cascade utilisation of geothermal resources from electricity production including local heating, balneological and agro economic utilisation are transparently calculated to provide a solid decision basis for both financing institutions and operators

The pilot projects were jointly run with the partners from Apatin and Becej (Serbia), Bijeljina (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Oradea (Romania).
