On the 21st of June, a bill was proposed for the modification of the authorisation scheme for geothermal energy.

The bill introduces a regime for requesting authorisations for the exploration and extraction of geothermal energy. After one month, 19 public responses were submitted, mostly by involved parties. DAGO is positive about the bill.  With it, an important step is taken towards better-fitting laws and regulations for geothermal energy. DAGO’s full response to the bill can be found here.
