 By 2050, geothermal energy can cover 25% of Switzerland's heating needs in a CO2-neutral way: a contribution to the energy transition and the reduction of CO2 emissions.

  • The earth provides lasting heat: a dormant energy potential beneath our feet.

  • A new value chain with regional jobs is created. Different professions work together.

  • Be part of it and shape the future!
