The energy source from under our feet - zero carbon heating and cooling from under the ground
This webinar will discuss how to combine efforts across Europe to maximise opportunities for the use of sustainable energy from aquifers. First, participants will get an overview of the technological solutions, and the climate and economic benefits of ATES which have been observed so far from three demonstration plants.
There will also be an open discussion about the potential for increased market penetration of ATES solutions.
11:00-11:10 Speakers & project introduction
11:15-11:30 E-USE pilot in the Netherlands
11:30-11:45 E-USE pilot in Spain
11:45-12:00 E-USE pilot in Italy
12:00-12:20 Market opportunities: open discussion
Who is this webinar for?
- Projects/(non-) partners/start-ups in the areas of:
- Urban redevelopment
- Reuse of waste heat/cold streams
- Renewable district heating&cooling networks
- Both EIT Climate-KIC members and non-members are invited to attend
The E-USE(aq) project
The E-USE(aq) project has designed and created six pilot plants across Europe to demonstrate the feasibility of combined applications of aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES), a low carbon heating and cooling solution which uses the underground (and aquifers in particular) for seasonal storage of heat or cold. The plants respond to specific market barriers which were identified in the early stage of the project.
