Thank you for this terrific event! DEEPEGS Final Meeting took place as a webinar on Friday, April 24, 2020, at 9:00 AM UTC.

The DEEPEGS Final Meeting 2020 as an online setup was an exciting experiment in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and a great achievement of teamwork. The event proved successful, with over 350 participants registered from around the World. Participants from Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and South, Central and North America attended the event.

The DEEPEGS team has been overwhelmed by the positive feedback, excellent meeting discussion, and contributions by all of researchers and listeners. We are very grateful and proud to see such a significant community interest in the deployment of deep, enhanced geothermal systems for the sustainable energy business. We acknowledge that challenges during the pandemic were overcome with excellent meeting outcomes and shown the opportunity in the continuation of sharing the knowledge scheme and contribution to the green future.

Meeting recording is now available to see, the information below.
