In 2004-2006, Hungarian Ministry approved 4 Geothermal
energy projects co-financed
- Project: Geothermal Energy
Beneficiary: Kistelek Town Municipality
Place: Kistelek (Csongrád, South-Alföld)
EU contribution: 1,160,000 EUR
Project description: The small town of Kistelek, in the south of Hungary, has drilled a
well to thermal water 1700 meters deep that is providing thermal water
to eight public institutions that have then change its heating system.
This change has made them reduce a 10% its heating supply and also
save money. The Kistelek project sets an example for other local councils
in Hungary where there is plenty of thermal water that can be used
in for heating.
Time frame: 2005-2007

Soft Energy of Volcanoes
SOGEO Company has built two geothermal power plants with 5 and 9 MW in
the Cachacos-Lombadas region and has
rebuilt one at Pico Vermelho increasing the power by 10 MW. In 2007
geothermal power were expected to deliver 161 GWh, a 38% of the
electricity supplies. Another projects of SOGEO and Geoterceira are
expected. The technology employed has proven to be reliable and
the project economically
viable, and it has reduced the energy dependence of the island.
Apart from that, the energy source is totally clean, which it is very
important for a region renowned for the exceptional quality of its environment.
Total project cost: 19,616,864 EUR
EU contribution: 9,808,432 EUR
