Green electricity from geothermal energy for Bavaria

A geothermal plant in Kirchweidach, Bavaria, will in future not only generate heat but also green electricity. To fully exploit the energy potential of deep heat, E.ON plans to build several small-scale power plants with a total capacity of around 6MW. The investment volume for the first phase of the project is €7.5 million (US$8.9 million) and E.ON will operate the plant for 15 years.
