DESTRESS is a Horizon 2020 supported project (Topic: Demonstration of renewable electricity and heating/cooling technologies) that is concerned with creating EGS (enhanced geothermal systems) for the more economical, sustainable and environmentally responsible exploitation of underground heat. The international consortium, representing academic, geothermal sites and industry, will utilize the latest developments in the use of hydraulic, chemical and thermal treatments for enhancing the productivity of geothermal reservoirs, with considerable interaction with various interests groups and the thorough assessment of the associated risk, in particular that associated with induced seismicity. This later point will be where Section 7.1 will have its role in the exposure assessment, vulnerability analysis and building monitoring of communities near geothermal production facilities, making use of tools developed in previous and ongoing projects.
