Stimulating the use of geothermal energy as a source of renewable energy for heating and/or electricity generation is a priority in all countries in the ERANET Geothermal Energy. Collaboration between the countries, to address common research, development and demonstration issues, can make efforts to further develop geothermal energy more efficient. Countries can learn from work done in other countries, and joint challenges can be taken up together. In order to get a clear view of common research, development and demonstration needs, the ERANET Geothermal energy conducted a survey amongst its member countries. All countries indicated about ten RD&D needs for the development of geothermal energy. These RD&D needs were discussed and clustered at a workshop
