Nowadays the energy price fluctuations and the economic crisis are jeopardizing the development and diffusion of renewable technologies and sources. With the aim of both reduce the overall costs of shallow geothermal systems and improve their installation safety, an European project has took place recently, under the Horizon 2020 EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation. The acronym of this project is Cheap-GSHPs, meaning "Cheap and efficient application of reliable Ground Source Heat exchangers and Pumps"; the Cheap-GSHPs project involves 17 partners among 9 European countries such Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Romania, Spain, Switzerland. In order to achieve the planned targets, an holistic approach is adopted, where all involved elements that take part of shallow geothermal activities are here integrated.

The general objectives within this project is the reduction of total costs of ownerships, the increase of the deployment of this technique versus the current estimates, a contribution to the environment via CO2 emission reduction and finally demonstrations that this technology is feasible even in civil and historical buildings (6 real and 10 virtual cases).

To this day the first results are a pan-European geological data set with drillability information, a structural cost-analyse of main types of ground source heat exchangers (GSHE), a new designed heat basket type GSHE, improvements in coaxial GSHE installations, a conceptual heat pump study, constructing of a user-friendly decision support system (DSS) and a pan-European legislative and regulatory analysis.
