Europe plans to replace natural gas with geothermal energy

In recent years, there has been increasing concern about the use of natural gas and its impact on the environment. Natural gas is a fossil fuel that emits greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. As a result, many countries are now exploring alternative energy sources, including geothermal energy.

One of the frontiers of this movement is Europe, which has plans to replace natural gas with geothermal energy. Geothermal energy is a renewable energy source derived from the heat of the Earth's core. This heat can be used to generate electricity and heat buildings. Geothermal energy is considered one of the most sustainable energy sources as it emits no greenhouse gases and has a very low carbon footprint.

Europe has long been a leader in the adoption of renewable energy, and geothermal energy is no exception. According to the European Geothermal Energy Council, Europe currently generates around 3.6 GW of electricity from geothermal sources, enough to power more than 3 million homes.

One of the key strategies to achieve these goals is to phase out the use of natural gas and replace it with cleaner energy sources such as geothermal energy. The European Union has set a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels.

To achieve this goal, the European Union has developed a number of initiatives to promote geothermal energy. One such initiative is the European Union's Strategic Energy Technology Program (SET program), which aims to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies, including geothermal energy. The SET program has identified geothermal energy as a priority area and set a target to increase geothermal energy production to 8 GW by 2030.

The European Union has also established the European Geothermal Innovation Award to recognize outstanding achievements in the field of geothermal energy. The awards are designed to promote innovation and excellence in the field of geothermal energy and to raise public awareness of the benefits of geothermal energy.

In addition to these initiatives, many European countries are developing their own strategies to promote geothermal energy. For example, Iceland, already a leader in geothermal energy production, has set a goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2040, primarily through the use of geothermal energy. Other countries, such as Germany and Italy, are also investing in geothermal energy, and the industry is growing significantly.

Replacing natural gas with geothermal energy will not be easy, and Europe is taking major steps to make it happen. Geothermal is expected to meet a significant portion of Europe's energy needs. With the right policies and investments, geothermal energy can play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change.
