GeoHex: the first RTD project for the Philippines

Project GeoHex, funded by European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, is the first RTD project for the Philippines that highlights transcontinental technology transfer for the development of advanced materials for cost-efficient and enhanced heat exchanger performance in geothermal applications.

Quantum Leap, a procurement and service company in the power sector from the Philippines and in conjunction with the Government of the Philippines, is working with experts from research institutes across UK and Europe to share cutting-edge technology towards building a sustainable renewable energy system. The technology transfer, as part of GeoHex project, aims to develop heat exchanger (HX) materials addressing both the improvements in the anti-scaling and anti-corrosion properties, as well as, the heat transfer performance of the HX material leading to more efficient and cost-effective systems. The reduced cost of geothermal plant based on GeoHex enabled HX, is proposed to significantly reduce the levelised cost of energy (LCOE), which will accelerate the growth of geothermal energy.
