New report in SAPHEA: Scenario Catalogue on the Integration of Geothermal Energy into District Heating and Cooling Networks

news-hydro |

The SAPHEA project team developed a Catalogue of scenarios in the framework of its WP 2 to identify existing basic and complex scenarios for the integration of shallow and deep geothermal energy into heating and cooling networks (HC networks) of different scales. These settings are complemented by new developments, which are not state of the art now, but could be promising scenarios for the future. The networks cover in this case all categories of grid generations used for heating and cooling. Based on these scenarios the SAPHEA project will now work on providing information about the potential to implement geothermal energy into heating and cooling networks in Europe.

SAPHEA aims to develop a single access point for the market uptake of geothermal energy use in multivalent heating and cooling networks across Europe. The project is funded by the European Union‘s HORIZON EUROPE research and innovation programme. For more information, see SAPHEA homepage.
