The programme of the Praxisforum Geothermie.Bayern is now released and accessible via the website.
The congress day opens with three different keynotes presented by Senior Legal Secretary Rainer Zimmer, Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology, Benjamin Richter, Rödl & Partner, and mayor Norbert Seidl, Town of Puchheim. They will present the current political development, the legal situation, investment opportunities and project development of geothermal energy in Bavaria.
The first thematic forum gives an overview on recent electricity producing projects that are under operation, construction or just ready to drill, such as the 10 MW project Weilheim by Enel. Forum I is simultaneous translated into English. The parallel Forum II (only in German language) takes care on geothermal heat producing projects in the Bavarian Molasse Basin.
After the lunch break two keynotes focus on exploration and operational experiences: Bernd Kapp speaks about the development of high performance production casing pumps in the Bavairan Molasse Basin. Dr. Christian Hecht from the municipal energy supplier Stadtwerke München introduces first results of the research project GRAME, the largest urban 3D seismic campaign.
The afternoon sessions are split in a simultaneous translated part by Forum III „Challenges in drilling technology of the Pre-Alpine-Region“ and the non-translated session of Forum IV “Bavarian Geothermal Alliance and R & D projects in Bavaria”. The first day ends with a Bavarian finish immediate after end of presentations to continue the discussions and networking.
