GRETA is a cooperation project funded by INTERREG Alpine Space 2014-2020. The main aim of GRETA is to foster the diffusion of near-surface geothermal energy (NSGE) in the Alpine regions. The main action foreseen in the project are i) assessment of shallow geothermal potential, ii) the proposal of guidelines for regulation and authorisation procedures and iii) the development of a methodology for the implementation of NSGE in energy planning instruments, such as Sustainable Energy Action Plans. GRETA started on December 2015 and will end on December 2018.
