Information about the use of geothermal energy for investors and municipalities.
Success factor deep geothermal energy:
Today¬†deep-seated geothermal energy projects do not fail primarily¬†due to technical¬†or geological problems. In fact, it becomes increasingly evident that the success of geothermal energy generation projects depends vitally on qualified answers in the¬†fields of risk management, financing, project organisation, economic efficiency and contract law.
According to our estimation there is an investment volume of up to 6.5 billion ‚ā¨¬†for deep-seated geothermal power plants during the next 10 to 15 years. Experts agree that the Southern German Molasse Basin is the largest and most important geothermal reservoir in Central Europe.

The role of the municipal energy suppliers as local energy suppliers:
At present,¬†most¬†of the national energy is produced by big concerns. Only 10 percent of the installed capacity in Germany is provided by municipal energy suppliers. To reduce this imbalance the German legislator is planning to¬†support the local energy generation.
The international EU-founded project GEOFAR (Geothermal Finance and Awareness in European Regions) is about the realisation and the sponsorship of geothermal energy generation. The project team consists of 8 European institutions and companies. One of those companies is R√∂dl & Partner. The main goal of the project is to analyse current financing opportunities and to develop suitable financing and supporting concepts.

World Geothermal Congress 2010:
The annual World Geothermal Congress 2010¬†took place¬†in Bali, Indonesia, from¬†the 25th to the 30th of April. R√∂dl & Partner¬†gave two lectures on the challenges of geothermal energy projects. The¬†topics were:
Subsidy Guidelines Geothermal Energy:
Currently there are many different possibilities to subsidise the financing of geothermal projects. Beside deep geothermal energy e.g. district heating networks are subsidised as well. In this context there are two subsidy programs and diverse funding programs from the KfW which are presented in detail by R√∂dl & Partner in the ‚ÄúSubsidy Guidelines Geothermal Energy‚ÄĚ. To complete these guidelines, sample projects and the current situation of funding guidelines, which have to be considered in this context are analysed on an European level.
Official opening ceremony of the¬†geothermal¬†energy plant¬†in Unterhaching:
The German Minister for the Environment Mr. Sigmar Gabriel and the Minister of State Mr. Siegfried Schneider attended the official opening ceremony of the geothermal energy plant in Unterhaching on 2nd June 2009. About 300 invited guests were present at this solemnly occasion. The event¬†was about the celebration¬†of the successful realisation of Germany¬īs largest geothermal energy¬†plant together with all responsible persons and project participants.
