Geothermal energy for the heat and energy transition in cantons, municipalities and cities

Decarbonisation and energy independence

During the Forum on October 4-5th in Basel, proven solutions to accelerate the decarbonisation and increase the energy independence with different geothermal applications are presented and explained. Examples, good practices, challenges and solution paths are presented and shared. Stakeholders are connected for realization.

Effective networking for regional added value

Pre-arranged 1-to-1 meetings, booths of solution providers, and networking sessions provide an effective platform to build bridges between the different stakeholders.

The forum is the occasion to

  • accelerate the integration of a natural, CO2 -neutral and local energy available 365 days a year in the energy mix,
  • develop the geothermal energy market with regional added value.

Target audience

  • representatives of municipalities, cantons and energy distribution companies
  • companies involved in the planning and implementation of energy and geothermal solutions
  • large property owners
  • companies with large energy requirements
  • investors
  • actors of the energy transition.

Position your company in a growing market

The Swiss geothermal market is booming for shallow geothermal and is in a very dynamic development phase for mid-depth and deep geothermal. In 2025 the European Geothermal Congress will be in Switzerland. It is the right moment now to position businesses for this growing market. Take advantage and present your products and services during the forum in Basel.
