    The fundamental knowledge and the awareness gap which exists within many key policy areas is indeed a major barrier to the implementation of both EU policy, and technology. Although the importance of this issue is recognised, the investment of manpower and finances remains relatively small compared to the investments in technology development, which is often never implemented due to public discourse. Engaging the general public requires a better understanding and communication among the economic, political, social and scientific actors.

    The ninth GeoTHERM will be taking place in its meanwhile successfully established form at 5th + 6th March 2015. Within eight years the combination of trade fair and congress has become Europe's leading event for geothermal energy. This is where the dynamics and quality standards of shallow and deep geothermal energy can enjoy a perfect setting. Our IET colleagues, Andreas Uihlein and Bergur Sigfusson, will be giving a presentation and promoting JRC's latest report "JRC Geothermal Energy Status Report 2014".

    The objective of this workshop is to impart knowledge about statistical evaluation of cylinder test data and their interpretation with respect to safety assessment. Essentials, which will be introduced and elaborated, are:

    - Influence of test parameters on test results including scatter from non-controlled test parameters

    - basics about degradation investigated by cycle and burst testing

    - basics of statistics and its use in evaluation of test data

    - basics of safety assessment by using statistics.

    Future energy systems will be forced to become increasingly flexible in order to cope with the challenges derived from the high penetration of renewable energy sources. Therefore, policy makers need to consider issues such as the effects of intermittent energy sources on the reliability and adequacy of the energy system, the impacts of rules governing the curtailment or storage of energy, or how much backup dispatchable capacity may be required to guarantee that energy demand is safely met.
