    THE GEOTHERMAL HEAT BENEATH PARISIAN STREETS

    Paris kicks off French geothermal ‘renaissance'

    Diarmaid Williams, 2 Sept. 2014 (Cogeneration & On-Site Power)

    “France is looking to exploit its highly promising geothermal power potential to provide heating for around 170,000 homes as well as schools and hospitals...Cofor and Schlumberger…[will partner to drill 2 kilometres] under the city at a point in the Parisian suburbs between the Eiffel Tower and Orly Airport…[T]he Paris region has the world’s second largest concentration after Iceland of so-called low energy geothermal…The city already possesses the Villejuif, Chevilly-Larue and L’Hay-les-Roses geothermal network, the largest of its kind in Europe and energy minister Segolene Royal is fully behind continuing to drive…[a renaissance] in the technology…State subsidies…[of 30 million euros ($40 million)] will enable extension by a quarter of that particular heating network…The geothermal installed capacity, at 16.5 MW, is small compared to the more than 128,000 MW of electricity that France’s power infrastructure is capable of producing…In 2013, it grew at 3 per cent compared with growth of 21 per cent for wind power and 53 percent for solar…Still, that was geothermal’s fasted growth since 2008…The French plan calls for raising geothermal capacity almost fourfold to 80 MW by 2020…” click here for more
