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...

The main objective of this thesis is to understand the environmental risks related to geothermal operations. The aim is to provide an integrated approach from both natural and social sciences and to perform this in three different country settings. These countries are Indonesia, Turkey and the Netherlands and they were selected because of their...

The aim of this study is to reduce the risk of the ongoing Geothermal exploration effort in Geneva Basin by estimating the influence of the natural fracture on the reservoir properties. A Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) was generated to resemble the fracture network in the Lower Cretaceous carbonate reservoir. The DFN modelling approach is using...

The carbon energy economy is gradually transforming into a sustainable energy economy, of which green hydrogen is regarded as one of the key players within it. However, although green hydrogen is spoken about extensively, significant production volumes and applications are yet to be introduced globally. The same holds for the Netherlands....

Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and sequestration (CCS) can play a significant role in reducing anthropogenic CO2 emissions while allowing society to slowly phase out traditional energy sources. One of the main challenge in CCS is the current absence of a clear revenue model. One idea is to use the sequestered supercritical CO2 as a working fluid...

Green hydrogen can be produced from various renewable energy sources like PV, wind, geothermal and biomass. Especially PV or wind sourced hydrogen production systems are becoming more prevalent as a solution to produce green hydrogen, owing to their regional abundance. In this master thesis project, a PV-grid powered electrolyser shall be taken...

The Port of Rotterdam Authority (PoRA) aims to be CO2 neutral by 2050. To achieve this goal, they have proposed three steps to make an energy transition. The transition focuses on shifting from fossil energy towards renewable energy, like wind energy, hydrogen and geothermal heat. The Port of Rotterdam (PoR) is an important area to make this...

The goal of this study is to test out the accuracy of the upscaling approach (Jinyu Tang, 2021) for a geothermal doublet. This approach tries to simulate the physical thermal dispersion. When modeling in a geothermal reservoir it would be easy if a lot of layers can be upscaled. However, when doing upscaling one can not just take an average of...

The Netherlands has set the ambitious goal to be CO2 neutral by 2050 and signed the Paris Treaty in 2015. The contribution of geothermal energy to reaching this goal are outlined in the Masterplan in 2018 which attempts to reduce CO2 emissions. It is imperative to enhance geothermal participation in renewable energy resources, so this thesis...

As part of the effort to make the Dutch waterways CO2-neutral, a consortium consisting of, among others, CRUX Engineering BV and Delft University of Technology, initiated a case study in which the thermal and mechanical performance of an energy sheet pile wall is studied. This technology allows for the extraction of energy from the water and...

To produce accurate 3D fluvial architecture models, it is important to understand the influence of internally generated autogenic controls versus externally generated allogenic controls. When studying a fluvial system, autogenic controls such as river meandering and avulsions generally dominate over 103-104 years. Allogenic controls such as...

This research is intended to create an insight into the heat exchange occurring in a well and to find ideal well conditions in which the performance of the heat exchange is maximised. For demonstrating and studying these aspects the well of Grouw-01 is analysed. The well of Grouw-01 is a depleted gas well attained from Vermilion Energy and is in...

Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) is a geothermal technique that is an important component in the transition towards renewable energy in the heating and cooling industry, which accounts for half of the world's energy consumption. However, the technology has not yet been implemented in many countries. The main reason is that extensive...

The TU Delft (strategic framework 2018-2024) aims to have a CO2 neutral and circular campus that departs from the linear economy to closed material cycles by 2030, meaning that the campus becomes climate neutral. Currently, the TU Delft is accountable for 47.957 tCO2-eq emissions, uses 166.038 MWh of energy for electricity and heat , and is for...

In a future scenario, the successful development of geothermal industry will result in the large-scale deployment of new deep geothermal projects. In highly populated areas, such as the Netherlands, such a development will lead to a dense grid of neighbouring licenses. In such a situation a new project requires careful design and planning as the...

Accurate and efficient predictions on the behavior of fluid flow and heat transport are required in the development of low-enthalpy geothermal reservoirs in fractured formations. Key challenges include the demand for high-resolution computational grids, the non-linear behavior of the system due to strong mass-heat coupling and the presence of...
