This publication includes a set of 14 case studies on the application of the United Nations Framework Classification for Resources (UNFC) to geothermal energy from Australia, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the Philippines and Russian Federation. The case studies presented here illustrate the application of the geothermal energy specifications for the uniform use of UNFC in different contexts. These application examples from different countries provide a range of scenarios in the classification of geothermal resources in a manner consistent with the classification of other energy resources.

Canavese GeoDH system

The Project concerns the integration of a groundwater heat pump unit (GWHP) within the district heating system of “Canavese” (Milan, Italy). In light of its expertise in cogeneration, district heating (DH) networks, and heat pump applications, A2A S.p.A (ex AEM) has decided to exploit the significant groundwater availability in the Milan area for energy purposes. The company started a development plan for integrating GWHPs within part of the already existing DH generation plants, one of them being “Canavese”.
