About Us

We believe that renewable, green energy can meet the energy needs of the population and the industry as a sustainable alternate. Our task is to ensure that geothermal energy is as widely available as possible.

PannErgy for the energy of the future!

It is a major step forward for humanity to moderate and in some cases eliminate our dependence on fossil energies by utilizing other, alternative energy resources, such as geothermal heat. PannErgy is committed to the energy-related exploitation of one of Europe’s largest active geothermal water resources. With environment-sparing investments, our company is able to set geothermal heat to serve households and industrial users in the long run, thereby achieving considerable reduction in energy expenses.

By replacing fossil fuels that are imported from abroad, PannErgy’s investments will significantly contribute to the reduction of geopolitical uncertainty, strengthening Hungary’s energy independence.

In order to protect surface waters and ground water at the same time to ensure the long-term sustainability of the geothermal system, PannErgy considers it essential that all extracted geothermal fluids are reinjected.

“Our goal is to provide sustainable solutions that offer the opportunity to alleviate our energy needs in the long run, showing a way out of the hydrocarbon-based energy dependence. Seeing the public needs and our efforts to maintain ecological balance, I am confident that our Company will take advantage of the opportunities provided by innovation and technology, continuing its operations as a greener energy provider.” Dénes Gyimóthy
Acting Chief Executive Officer at PannErgy Plc.

Our strategic objectives

Geothermal energy as the sustainable and operable alternative of conventional energy resources that cause pollution.

One of the most significant, still unexploited treasures in the Carpathian Basin, and specifically Hungary, is a network of geothermal resources lying under the ground, the utilization of which would make heat and electric power readily available in an environmentally friendly manner. The growth of demands for energy seems to be unstoppable, while the volume of both domestic and global sources is limited. The professional and effective geothermal energy production results in the exploitation of a huge pool of resources that have just been minimally utilized so far, while being one of the cleanest and most environmentally friendly ways of power generation. Today, the European Union does not only welcome these new forms of energy production, but also tries to orient the Member States, including Hungary, by establishing strict programs and targets.

PannErgy Plc started pioneering activities in Hungary for the utilization of geothermal energy. The extraction and use of large volumes of geothermal heat is such a niche segment in the energy industry that calls for a high level of risk tolerance, innovative thinking and complex competences. With respect to the fact that the use of geothermal heat in energy supply itself is an innovative solution, PannErgy Group aspires to support these operations by deploying state-of-the-art solutions in the current technological settings, while strengthening its professional knowledge base by driving continuous research. Owing to its innovative developments, PannErgy is able to offer outstanding safety of service supply with a low level of resource demands and high efficiency.

With its many years of experience and competences in the fields of the exploration of energetically utilizable geothermal resources, the drilling of geothermal wells and the use of geothermal energy, PannErgy Group holds nearly unique capabilities to implement further heat supply investments in the Carpathian Basin for use both in the household and corporate sectors. In addition to the construction, geothermal utilization, implementation and operation of conventional systems, PannErgy Group has worked out complex energy and control engineering systems that can also be used in international settings. PannErgy’s R&D systems can be used in the design and development of district heating services based on geothermal energy in Europe and beyond, or for the optimization of obsolete district heating services that utilize conventional energy carriers and geothermal heat energy systems operated with suboptimal efficiencies.

The march of civilization brings about the emission of hazardous substances in ever-increasing quantities. We have common responsibility for counteracting this process until it becomes irreversible; energy producers, consumers and regulators need to work towards this end without any distinction. The demand for energy is on the rise, while conventional resources, especially fossil energies will have been depleted over time, and in parallel are expected to become significantly more costly, and therefore an increasing emphasis should be placed on the use of alternative energies, such as geothermal energy. For this reason, the utilization of geothermal energy has the potential to offer substantial economic and environmental protection advantages.
