We are advising the Geological Survey of Estonia (EGT) in relation to the geothermal energy deployment research project GEOENEST.

Geothermal energy

Geothermal energy is the solar energy stored in the ground and the energy stored deep inside the Earth’s crust. The aim of the project is to contribute to achieving of the goals of Estonian energy and climate policy through analysis and piloting of the possibilities using geothermal energy.

EGT started carrying out large-scale studies in 2021 and will continue until 2024 in order to assess the technical and economic viability of geothermal energy uses and to build the first geothermal energy test stations in Estonia for this purpose.

Our services and client team

We are advising EGT on the first stage of the project, which entails concluding agreements with the owners of the land on which the 2,500-metre deep boreholes will be executed for the pilot project – the first ever of their kind in Estonia.

Our client team is being led by senior associate Britta Retel, supported by partner Paul Künnap, counsel Kaspar Endrikson and senior associate Andra Grünberg.
