Geosophy allows real estate and construction professionals to assess the geo-energy potential of the subsoil of a building to be renovated or built. They can thus cool their buildings in summer and heat them in winter, dividing their energy costs by 5, and reducing the carbon footprint of a building by up to 90%. Geo-energy, or surface geothermal energy, is a local, sustainable, non-carbonated, discreet and silent energy from the shallow subsoil, which at this stage is largely under-exploited in France. This solution is based on our ability to develop Physics and financial models, using data science and machine learning techniques to automatize and refine feasibility studies of geo-energy installations.

Implementation Stories

SCAN by Geosophy by Geosophy
Implemented by IDF Investissements et Territoires in Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine (France) in 2022

SEM Ile de France Investissements et Territoires, a parapublic real estate company specializing in commercial real estate has contacted Geosophy to identify carbon free ways of heating and cooling their new buildings (incl. a healthcare professional house) because the traditional engineering companies they usually work with do not have the expertise to assess geo-energy.


Modeled estimated savings at -90% co2 compared to gas & -50% compared to standard electrical heat pumps


The environmental benefits

  • In 2022, Geosophy has processed 10,319,090 square meters of buildings, avoiding a total of 68,530 tons of CO2 per year, as well as 29,096k € per year in charges to its clients
  • Geosophy has more than 1000 subscribers on its platform, has performed more than 3,500 tests and 200 opportunity scans
  • By 2026, Geosophy's solution makes it possible to avoid 380,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent, i.e. the equivalent of 7% of the emissions of Paris (source: GPC carbon assessment of the Paris territory from the PCAET 2014 assessment)
  • Our clients can cool their buildings in summer and heat them in winter, reducing the carbon footprint of a building by up to 90%

The Financial benefits

  • Payback time starting from 5 years : Real estate value of the building increased up to 15%
  • Real estate and construction professionals can cool their buildings in summer and heat them in winter, dividing their energy costs by 5
