Seeking to achieve a successful transition to cleaner energy systems, targeo provides to heat transition players/local utilities/Stadtwerke a regional analysis to identify the best potential geothermal clients in their region outside their current customer base. It allows to address this client in groups and make campaign installations to leverage scaling effects. It also gives an overview of CO2 emission in their region, per building, and a way forward to decrease them. This solution relies on the process of data about the underground and geothermal potential, the characteristics of buildings and their demand, and the existing infrastructures; thanks to a precise GIS approach. In addition, targeo works as a geothermal expert office realizing all the subsurface infrastructure turn-key in a contracting model including planning, permitting, drilling and operation.
