In addition project partners are continuously working on media and non-media activities. These activities have been successfully completed or are in a constant state of development till the perceived end of the project:
DID YOU KNOW? “Even though geothermal is technically a finite resource, the typical lifetime for geothermal activity can range from 5,000 years to 1,000,000 years therefore, it’s considered a renewable resource.” Source: http://www.ourenergy.com
Within WP1: Transnational project and financial management Partnership agreement and Subsidy contract have been signed, members of the PMT(Project Management Team), PSC(Project Steering Committee) and PTS(Project Technical Secretariat) have been appointed. In addition the implementation manual has been done.

WP4: Advancing low-temperature geothermal energy technologies Activities within this WP are in progress. Project partners are currently dealing with output description of case-study locations.
Project meeting in Padua The project meeting was primarily aimed at presenting the current updates of the project and gain insight on possible optimization of efforts. Progress on each of the work packages was presented as well as some difficulties regarding their execution was pointed out. In addition, past experience from various partners in their specific field of expertise were presented by UM (Technologies for geothermal and RES integration), TESAF (Geographic models), IGR (Integration and information database) to name a few. Special focus was given to the relevant content of the information database.
