Short description: On-demand data information software can be used to harmonise public geodatabase for experts and to support energy providers in developing subsurface renewable energy projects. Niche market started booming due to emerging incentives and increasing demand in heat, electricity and lithium.
Market potential: Total European market volume of geo software: ~50 M€. Solution can be extended to numerous subsurface energy domain both public and private. Development time: 1-5 years, initial investment: 0.1-1 M€.
Timing: As soon as possible. Ideally, prototype should be developed within a year. Alternative solution for oil and gas industry is available, but that is costly and specialised.
Desired result: Prototype of web-based data information system that can be used by experts of geological surveys or energy supplier companies for gaining necessary information about the geological properties and potential risks at any phase of geothermal energy development.
