InnoGeo Ltd is the spin-off company of the University of Szeged, its founders (Aquaplus Kft, Árpád Agrár Zrt, Geothermal Coordination and Innovation Foundation) are organizations committed to the development of the geothermal industry and to the sustainable extraction and use of deep geothermal energy in the Southern Great Plain region.
The mission of the company is to help coordinate regional developments related to geothermal energy, to create a balance between its economic, technological and environmental aspects, to foster the two-way transfer of innovation needs and results between research institutions and users, to provide consultancy for the geothermal energy sector, companies and municipalities, and to carry out regional monitoring of geothermal heat and water extraction for long-term sustainability (including the hydrodynamic transport and storage of resources). A priority of the company is to provide reliable information about renewables to the general public, influence their energy use habits and familiarize younger generations with scientific and industrial career options.
The company aims to achieve the above goals by relying on its own human resources, as well as in cooperation with research institutions and companies in the region (including Serbia and Romania), in domestic, cross-border and EU projects.
Creating a harmonious relationship between society and the environment
The long-term goal of the founders by establishing InnoGeo Ltd. was to assist the set-up of a regional deep geothermal industry, and the support of its development – with special regard to small and medium-sized enterprises engaged in R&D and the distribution and sale of cascade-based technology, as well as to the energy service providers using these technologies. Through these activities, the company also wants to effectively assist regional secondary and tertiary vocational education in renewable energy management, as well as to increase the awareness and social acceptance of geothermal energy use.
The staff of InnoGeo Ltd have participated in several research and development projects, whose results have been published in domestic and international conference presentations, posters and scientific journals. Besides these the company has published 4 handbooks.
