GEOCOM project of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union.
A b s t r a c t . Since January 2010, Mineral and Energy Economy Research Institute of Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow participates in the implementation of the Project: Geothermal Communities – demonstrating the cascading use of geothermal energy for district heating with small scale RES integration and retrofitting measures (acronym GEOCOM). The project is financed by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme. It will last for 60 months. The consortium implementing the project includes partners from Hungary, Italy, Slovakia, Macedonia, Serbia, Romania and Poland. The project aims to present best practices in the use of geothermal energy in integration with other energy sources, with particular emphasis on renewable energy sources. The project covers part of the investment, in which modernization and expansion of two existing geothermal installations (Galanta in Slovakia and Mórahalom in Hungary) and the construction of a new system for existing customers (Montieri in Italy) is underway. Dissemination and education of use of the geothermal energy in integration with other sources creates the second main topic of the project.
