The research group Geothermal Science and Technology conducts basic research projects and is involved in the expert and scientific assessment or consulting of shallow and deep geothermal projects. Current topics of our research are:
Reservoir characterization by determination of geothermal rock parameters
Simulation and measurements under reservoir conditions
Geothermal reservoirs and potentials (hydrothermal and petrothermal systems)
Medium deep borehole thermal energy storage systems
Direct and indirect utilization of geothermal energy for heating, cooling and thermal storage purposes
Integration of geothermal systems into networks of other (renewable) energy systems
Measurement instrumentation in the field of geothermal energy
Development and optimization of materials for geothermal and line construction applications
Thermal and hydraulic optimization of buried cable routs
Coupled numerical modeling of heat and mass transport
Potential- and feasibility studies
Development of planning and completion parameters and methods for geothermal projects
