#4 SCCER-SoE Blog
In our fourth blog post you get to know DESTRESS – a recently started EU project that aims to pave the way for economically successful, sustainable, and environmentally responsible geothermal energy plants. Professor Stefan Wiemer and Michèle Marti, the authors and both involved in the SCCER-SoE and DESTRESS, discuss frequent pitfalls of geothermal projects and how demonstration sites and collaborative research can help to overcome them. The post is available in English, German, and French. Feel free to share it on Facebook, Twitter & Co. and recommend our blog to interested people. October 2016
