Good practices on geothermal energy use in Hungary
In Hungary, geothermal energy is a huge treasure that can be used efficiently. Thermal water will be used in the Károly Laky swimming pool and the Széchenyi Bath in Budapest. In Jászapáti, thermal water will also be used for heating, which will help to significantly reduce current gas consumption. Szeged would be to become, the “greenest town in Hungary” and a project has been launched to build a geothermal district heating system. It means that the current annual consumption of 30 million cubic meters of gas will be halved and, in parallel, CO₂ emissions.
