Investigating the potential for Geothermal Energy in the Geneva Basin
The seismic campaign in the Geneva basin. This is a short documentary produced by SciencEscape in collaboration with the University of Geneva.
At the heart of the energy transition of the canton of Geneva (Switzerland) is to harness geothermal energy. A crucial step for the geothermal project, launched in 2014, is to map the subsurface in order to locate and target the geological layers most suited for geothermal energy. A large-scale seismic campaign was carried out in the Geneva basin with close collaboration between the University of Geneva, Services Industriels de Genève (SIG), the City of Geneva and the private company Smart Seismic Solution-S3.
