Date du début: 28 févr. 2011, Date de fin: 30 août 2012 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

Western Lithuania and Kurzeme are famous for their unique geothermal conditions - good for municipal heating systems of small rural municipalities and estates. If properly utilized, it may be the cleanest and most sustainable energy source. Yet, its application in municipal heating systems had been difficult so far, particularly in small rural municipalities because investment costs are high and the essential knowledge is missing. The fundamental objective of this project is to provide the necessary know-how for the key decision-makers and community activists. In particular, on costs and benefits of the geothermal energy utilization in municipal heating systems. The main aim of the project will be achieved by the series of workshops and training for local target groups of the cross-border region. Joint cross-border strategy for geothermal energy utilization in municipal heating systems of small rural municipalities and estates of Klaipeda County and Kurzeme region will be developed along with two full-scale technical feasibility studies for pilot estates. Achievements: Culture festivals organised, equipment purchased. Long-term relationship between communities were established, four cooperation agreements were signed.
