Description (EN): The Alpine region must tackle rising energy consumption and, accordingly, CO2 emissions reduction, related mostly to heating needs (mainly from residential and tourism sectors). The potential of renewable energy sources to handle this energy requirement has been discussed in some recent studies. However, the opportunity to utilize Near-Surface Geothermal Energy (NS ...

The entire Adriatic Region shares at least 200 million years of common geological history. The limestone created on this platform was used as a primary building material throughout the whole project area and takes one of the most important roles in creating common human history. The specific platy limestone as the basic construction material gives the Adriatic coastline and its interior the primar ...

... ous targets for carbon emission reduction, renewable energy production must strongly be upgraded and made more efficient and capable for grid energy storage. Alpine Foreland Basins feature a unique geological inventory which can contribute substantially to tackle these challenges. Deep ‘Molasse’ basins at the fringe of the Alpine mountain range offer an abundant geothermal potential and storage ca ...

Geothermal Energy (the energy extracted from heat stored in the earth) is one of the most environmental-friendly and cost-effective energy resources in use and has the potential to help mitigate global warming if widely deployed in place of fossil fuel. Technological advances have dramatically expanded the range of viable resources, especially for applications such as home heating & cooling, openi ...

Sustainable Aggregates Planning in South East Europe  (SNAP-SEE)

Start date: Sep 30, 2012, End date: Sep 29, 2014,

Assuring sustainable supply of aggregates resource is an important challenge due to their limited availability when aiming at sustainable regional development. Due to the regional differences and historical development, there are diverse approaches to aggregates policies, planning and management in South East Europe, which is hindering resource efficiency and economic development in the region. Th ...

Rivers in SEE region are often threatened by unsustainable use, increasing human pressure, and problems of increased floods and droughts driven by climate change. Inhabitation of floodplain areas, hydropower utilization, navigation, gravel and sand extraction, unsustainable tourism etc. lead to changes in morphology, increased pollution, degradation of aquatic habitats, as well as land use conflic ...

... re shared by different countries in a sustainable way. Natural resources, such as geothermal energy whose main carrying medium are deep groundwaters along regional flow paths are strongly linked to geological structures that do not stop at state borders. Therefore only a transboundary approach and the establishment of a joint, multi-national management system may handle the assessment of geotherma ...

Sustainable Aggregates Resource Management (SARMa)

Start date: Apr 30, 2009, End date: Oct 29, 2011,

Aggregates (crushed stone, sand and gravel) are crucial for infrastructure and construction. SEE countries are rich in aggregates, but supply is not coordinated within or across the area. Challenges are illegal and damaging quarries, unreclaimed sites, limited recycling and community opposition. Fulfilling demand requires efficient and sustainable supply chain (planning, extraction, transport, use ...
