Energy piles, a technology integrating the heat exchange component within building pile foundations for shallow geothermal energy utilization, have proven economically efficient. They outperform conventional ground source heat pumps by mitigating additional borehole costs and space requirements. This paper systematically examines low-carbon...

In this study, we present an efficient and flexible adjoint-based framework for history matching and forecasting geothermal energy extraction at a large scale. In this framework, we applied the Principal Component Analysis to reduce the parameter space for representing the complex geological model. The adjoint method is implemented for...

Natural fractures play a crucial role in many sustainable subsurface applications, particularly in reservoirs with low primary porosity and permeability. Therefore, fracture analysis has become a fundamental aspect of geosciences, often starting with fracture interpretation from borehole image logs. It has been widely recognized that...

In the geothermal exploration well, NLW-GT-01, in the West Netherlands Basin, a very tight reservoir with low porosity (≤5.0%) and matrix permeability (≤ 0.1mD) has been encountered in the Main Buntsandstein Subgroup. The impact of natural fractures, which can significantly impact fluid flow in tight reservoirs, has been studied. However, there...

To deal with the pressure on urban energy infrastructures, renewable urban planning is on the rise and ambitious sustainability targets have been set to transform cities. Although these targets have resulted in many sustainable policies, the implementation of sustainability policies is lagging, hindering the energy transition. One such case, is...

Geothermal energy is a cleaner and more sustainable source of power, which plays a key role in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Sustainable and safe exploitation of geothermal resources, however, depends on our ability to understand and manage the associated seismic risks. In 2018, Nature's Heat geothermal project began operations in...

Tracking temperature changes by measuring the resulting resistivity changes inside low-enthalpy reservoirs is crucial to avoid early thermal breakthroughs and maintain sustainable energy production. The controlled-source electromagnetic method (CSEM) allows for the estimation of sub-surface resistivity. However, it has not yet been proven that...

As part of a seismic monitoring project in a geothermal field, where the feasibility of re-injection and storage of produced CO<sub>2</sub> is being investigated, a P- and S-wave seismic velocity characterisation study was carried out. The effect of axial and radial (up to 42 MPa) stress, pore pressure (up to 17 MPa), pore fluid (100% brine...

We develop a multiscale simulation strategy, namely, algebraic dynamic multilevel (ADM) method, for simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer in fractured geothermal reservoirs under varying thermodynamic conditions. Fractures with varying conductivities are modeled using the projection-based embedded discrete fracture model (pEDFM) in an...

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...

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...

In 2018, the geothermal project Nature's Heat started its operations to supply heat to 64 hectares of greenhouses in Kwintsheul, Netherlands. The operation involves the extraction and reinjection of geothermal fluids at a depth of about 2.4km. Several studies suggested that geothermal operations in these parts of The Netherlands are unlikely to...

Emotions may play an important role in how citizens respond to public policies, and energy policies in particular. Yet, little insights exist into causes of those emotions. This study investigates ethical concerns as the basis of emotions. We test whether people perceive an unequal distribution of negative outcomes of a local energy project as...

Public perceptions of emergent low-carbon technologies, such as geothermal energy, impact the speed of energy transitions. Such perceptions are largely shaped by how the media portray such technologies. This paper reports on how geothermal energy has been framed in two prominent national newspapers in Indonesia, a country with large geothermal...
