To strengthen geothermal energy as an alternative energy, five subprojects with focus on geology and engineering science are supported by the Geothermal-Alliance Bavaria (GAB).
- Subproject "Characterization of reservoirs"
- Subproject "PetroTherm"
- Subproject "Operational safety for the thermal water cycle"
- Subproject "Monitoring"
- Subproject "Efficient and flexible power plants"
Beside these subprojects, publicly supported projects are integrated into the GAB. The network between these associated projects is carried out at the TUM Munich School of Engineering in organized workshops and symposia.
