Deep geothermal energy solutions
Geothermal energy is heat energy that is deep in the earth’s crust. Due to Finland’s geological conditions, the production of geothermal energy is most profitable when focused on producing heat. You need specific geological details to plan geothermal energy production.
An immense amount of heat energy is stored deep in the earth’s crust under Finland, even though the temperature is much lower than in well-known geothermal countries, such as Iceland or Italy. However, the energy can be used to produce geothermal district heating, even in Finland.
GTK has assessed the potential of geothermal energy around Finland. The geological conditions define the volume of the available energy (deep geothermal energy potential in GTK’s map services). With geological information and measurements, we can significantly reduce the risks and costs related to implementing geothermal production.
