ITER Project was presented during the seventh Long Night of Sciences, held in Nürnberg, Fürth and Erlangen on 24 October 2015.

The shallow geothermal energy research group of FAU, GeoZentrum Nordbayern, Lehrstuhl für Geologie presented the latest research activities of the group in the shallow geothermal energy field.

A day focused on dissemination, outreach activities and devoted to sharing scientific information and news with a wider public.

As research group, we were there!!!! Most notheworthy we had the opportunity to present the ITER Project! In detail, we showed the latest releases from  national and international projects focused on geothermal energy (i.e. GEOSURF Project)! What a nice experience!

Researchers as Dr. David Bertermann of FAU interacts with a wider public comprehensive all range of ages. An interesting opportunity to provide information about what is shallow geothermal energy,a TEBMK and an horizontal thermal collector. Then an interested and curious audience asked many questions about the environmental impact over time of these systems. And, of course, about the feasibility and costs of using this particular renewable energy sources!!!

We tried to meet all requests!!! and also to explain a little bit how heat transfer acts and what are soil thermal properties! Hence, in few words, what is the very shallow geothermal potential of the ground!
