It is becoming increasingly clear how necessary it is to make rapid and ambitious progress in the area of climate protection. Deep geothermal energy can make an important contribution to electricity generation, but especially to heat supply. The German government has now also recognised this, but there are still challenges - both technical and in terms of licensing law. But these too can be successfully mastered.

The Geothermie.Bayern practical forum will show possible solutions. Experts from science, business, politics and practice will discuss how geothermal projects can be optimally implemented. Numerous electricity and heat projects, many of them in the geothermal hotspot of Bavaria, present what sustainable energy generation looks like. Currently, there are also many new projects in development in Bavaria, which we would like to present at this year's practical forum.

The popular industry event and networking meeting will take place again from 16 to 18 October 2024 at the Bürgerhaus Pullach near Munich. The congress day on 17 October 2024 will be simultaneously translated. GeoTHOUR will also be available with English translation.

Book your hotel early - but we have also reserved contingents in Pullach and the surrounding area for registered participants.

Turboden, a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries group company, is an Italian firm and a global leader in the design, manufacture and maintenance of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) systems, highly suitable for distributed generation. ORC systems can generate electric and thermal power exploiting multiple sources, such as renewables energies (geothermal, biomass, solar), traditional fuels, waste heat from industrial processes, urban waste, engines or gas turbines. The company was founded in 1980. In 2013 Turboden became part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries group, world leader for innovation in power generation. Turboden proprietary ORC systems efficiently exploit low-to-high enthalpy geothermal sources, up to 40 MW per single unit. As of today Turboden has delivered more than 400 ORC plants in 49 different countries. Turboden is the high quality, high reliability ORC supplier.

Logo OMV


OMV is one of the largest listed industrial companies in Austria. OMV intends to evolve from an integrated oil, gas and chemicals company into a leading supplier of innovative and sustainable fuels, energy, chemicals and materials, while taking a leading global role in the circular economy. OMV's goal is to play a significant role in the decarbonisation of industries and cities, with a focus on geothermal applications. OMV aims to achieve net zero in all three scopes by 2050 at the latest.
