Unlocking the potential of geothermal energy

Geothermal energy is a local, renewable technology that uses underground heat to provide heating and cooling or electricity. It provides a renewable energy source for buildings, industrial processes, agriculture and supports local development. With so many different applications and vast untapped potential, geothermal energy is bound to become the bedrock of energy transition.

Hungary, located in the geothermal-rich Pannonian Basin, sits on a potentially low-cost, clean alternative to fossil fuels. Building up geothermal capacity in Hungary would help to create a stable, clean and local energy resource and contribute to phasing out fossil fuels this way supporting Hungary’s energy independence and national climate ambitions. The Hungarian government aims to upscale domestic geothermal energy and urged a paradigm shift by creating a supportive regulatory and attractive investment environment.
