The Conference held from 7 to 8 October focuses geothermal energy as the first major trade event in terms of depth on the development of geothermal energy projects in the North German basin.

The geothermal potential in the North of Germany is great: with up to 200 C in a suitable rock layers, the North German basin offers excellent conditions to harness geothermal energy in power plants.
Over 10,000 exploration also provide a comprehensive data base for a meaningful examination of the geological conditions for fossil fuels and other natural resources. It is not surprising that here in terms of geothermal energy was pioneered: in 1984 the first German plant to the use of geothermal energy in the megawatt range recorded in Waren (Muritz) their operation. The GeothermieNord. 2010 includes the all-day Conference on October 7, as well as two half-day workshops and an excursion into the geological collection of country or the drilling core camp at Sternberg on October 8.
