The first quandary in strength costs was once certainly a powerful stimulus for the involvement of the fee of the ecu groups in examine and improvement on substitute strength resources. certainly, the necessity to triumph over problems confronted by means of the neighborhood as a complete, fairly these as a result of its critically unbalanced power provide, made a typical group process appear specially apt. This reasoning additionally applies to power R&D, taking into account that responses to the situation might be not just political or fiscal, but in addition medical. 4 years have handed because the determination of the Council of Ministers to release the 1st neighborhood power study and improvement Programme, facing geothermal power, solar power, hydrogen construction and utili­ sation, strength conservation and effort structures research. A seminar on geo­ thermal power used to be held years in the past to record on paintings in development on the half-way degree of the four-year programme. the second one foreign seminar, mentioned during this quantity, used to be arrang­ ed in an effort to provide a chance to envision the ultimate final result of this neighborhood funding in learn in geothermal power. This lawsuits quantity consequently has major goals: - to give an overview of the result of the neighborhood geothermal programme, by way of eighty three formal stories describing the person study programmes; - to teach how the neighborhood learn programme suits into the final context of nationwide and overseas learn on geothermal strength, by way of together with the shows of six visitor audio system who brought the periods and gave keynote addresses.

Geophysical methods Generally speaking, the hopes that were based initiaLLy on the deveLopment of geophysical prospecting methods specifically for geothermal purposes were iLLusory, if not naive. There are three main areas of consideration: structure, reservoir formation and the properties of the soaking fluid. There is aLso the geological context of the system which can be sub-divided into two classes: sedimentary and volcanic (with some overlapping areas of course), these affect the prospecting objective which will take account of structural and geometric factors in the first case, and anomalies in the second.

Still others, basing their views on the observation of surface and deep rocks (taking their evidence from deep mines and tunneLs) put forward the idea of muLtipLe fractures propagating into the voLume of the rock, along the naturaL fracturing network, which would have been defLected by the tectonic and orogenic stresses acting on the rock. the fieLd of constraints and controL the fracturing process. Among the secondary modes of stimuLating the rock which are appLied after hydrauLic fracturing, mention shouLd be made of Leaching and thermal fracturing.

DownhoLe instrumentation It has aLso been possibLe, in this part of our programme, to deveLop downhoLe instrumentation which is better adapted to professionaL requirements. PracticaLLy aLL the teams engaged in fieLd-tests for measuring geothermaL heat fLows have designed and buiLt their own equipment. Two programmes which have received Community support deserve a speciaL comment. Ly originaL measuring principle involving the use of microwelds and the mounting of thermopiles derived from cardiac pacemakers and is a triumph of technology.
