Energy poverty is an increasingly important issue. While vulnerable households are especially at risk in the energy transition, energy poverty effects of the transition are unknown. In Delft, a district heating network based on geothermal energy is planned. The distributive justice aspects of heat networks in the heating transition remain...

The United Nations’ Paris Agreement forces nations and industries to transition from conventional hydrocarbon-based energy sources to more sustainable and less-emitting alternatives such as geothermal energy. Geothermal doublets are used to provide a source of green heat to greenhouses and residential buildings. In industry, reservoir simulators...

Interpretation of the thermal properties of soils is an important challenge in the field of geo-engineering, for example the development of geothermal energy solutions and for the design of electricity cable routes used for offshore wind farms. Of the thermal properties, the thermal conductivity is of most interest to find, as this determines...

Wide band gap semiconductor has attracted significant industrial interest over the past decade with its superior properties: such as high critical electrical field, high thermal conductivity andwide band gap. Meanwhile many industries operating in harsh environments have long had demands for sensing solutions that function at high temperature....

Currently, a large part of the energy used to provide heat to heating network comes from gas boilers, a combustion process where 2.2kg of CO2 is emitted for every m^3 of gas. Deep geothermal energy is implemented more in The Netherlands over the last couple of years as a substitute to the conventional boilers and this is a technique that is...

Geothermal energy in the Netherlands is growing in general, however, medium deep geothermal (200 - 1500 m depth) is lagging behind while the potential at these depths could be very high. Development is held back by little geologic knowledge of this interval as well as legislative constraints. Better understanding of the reservoir characteristics...

Aquacultures are rapidly increasing worldwide to meet the rising protein demand caused by population growth. However, commonly used fish feed products are known to harm the environment while depleting natural species. Various microbial protein forms are thus being investigated, such as those using hydrogen-oxidising bacteria, referred to as MP....

The Dutch government has set an ambitious goal: by 2030, greenhouse gas emissions in the Netherlands should be 49% lower than they were in 1990.But even though geothermal energy is gaining recognition given the high heating demand in the Netherlands and its subsurface potential, implementation of this technology, especially in urban areas, is...

CO2 and H2S are reinjected at Hellisheiði, Iceland, to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases. An active-source seismic campaign was done in July, 2021, to image the reinjection reservoir with various seismic methods for consecutive monitoring. At the same time, passive-source seismic data was recorded for imaging.<br/>We process this passive...

Subsurface energy projects carry high risk due to the lack of data available to accurately model reservoir characteristics. There is a need for high level analysis to extrapolate subsurface data from a single point (i.e. a well). The focus of this study will be on fracture characterisation in a carbonate reservoir located within the Geneva Basin...

In a world transitioning towards renewable energies and lithium-battery powered cars, there has been an annual increase in demand of 6% for lithium and other rare metals between 2000 and 2008 (Stringfellow &amp; Dobson, 2021a), and this increase in demand is forecast to continue through 2040 (Latnussa et al., 2020). Meanwhile, there is a concern...

The North German basin holds high potential for geothermal lithium exploration. Yet, so far, the assessment of reservoirs concentrates on locations in the Upper Rhine Graben. This thesis gives an example for the evaluation of a potential geothermal lithium reservoir of the Middle Buntsandstein at the location Horstberg in Lower Saxony. The...

The Paris Agreement was created in an effort to enhance the global response to the issue of climate change. To reach this goal, greenhouse gas emissions must be at least 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 and the temperature rise must be kept below 2 degrees Celsius this century. Moreover, the recent fossil fuel price increases, are pressing eye...

Global energy transition is crucial in mitigating climate change. Numerous initiatives are being taken globally to achieve a carbon-neutral energy system. These goals require a complete shift from non-renewable energy sources to renewable sources like geothermal energy. These renewable sources of energy have to be constantly improved in order to...

Geothermal sources could provide society with clean and renewable energy nearly eternally. Geothermal district heating, in particular, could play a significant role in the energy transition. Although the application has been implemented to some extent, further upscaling is challenging due to various economic, technical and institutional...

Acidizing is a widely used technique for intensification of geothermal wells. At certain conditions, acid injection results in a formation of highly conductive channels, e.g. wormholes. The associated rock matrix dissolution is highly nonlinear and may influence the fluid flow as well as rock properties. Wormhole patterns and breakthrough time...

In the energy transition from fossil fuels to less polluting renewable energy sources geothermal energy are considered as a promising technology. Gasses such as CO2 are often dissolved in geothermal waters. With the extraction of these fluids from the reservoir, a change in pressure will occur towards the extraction well which may cause...

The rising demand for clean energy has drawn the attention for more geological research to low enthalpy geothermal applications in the Netherlands. A multi-scale reservoir characterization is carried out with the aim to understand the geothermal reservoir potential of the Triassic Main Buntsandstein (RBM) in the Tilburg area. Seismic data, well...

The Indonesian government has set a target to increase new and renewable energy sources in the energy mix by 23% in 2030 and 31% in 2050, which are to be met by investing in hydropower and geothermal energy capacity mainly. However, Indonesia has abundant other renewable energy potentials, which are largely untapped. The Java-Madura-Bali (Jamali...
