Science & Technology: Research Into Supercritical Geothermal Sources

Geothermal 3.0 is Born at Larderello (Enel)

Descramble, the European project coordinated by Enel Green Power, gathers researchers from Italy, Germany and Norway engaged in testing solutions and technologies for the treatment of water in ‘supercritical’ conditions, with pressure values 218 times higher than those on the surface and subject to a temperature of around 374°C.

Italy, Germany and Norway have joined together to lead Europe’s geothermal power towards the future. This the Descramble project, funded by the EU, which has chosen Larderello (Italy) to push the oldest renewable technology towards a new frontier.
