Geothermal Alliance Bavaria (GAB-2)

In this subproject, the minimization of the drilling, exploration and production risk of hydrothermal geothermal energy in the Bavarian Molasse Basin, as well as sustainable reservoir management, are to be addressed in particular. (https://geothermie-allianz.de/en/home/)

Funded by: StMWK                                 Targeted SDG: 7

GAB: Chemical reservoir management

In this project, which is part of the Geothermal-Alliance Bavaria, subproject "long-term. Ensuring sustainable thermal water production" the physical and hydrochemical measured values of characteristic plants are processed and examined for multivariate changes in order to discriminate and quantify natural and technically induced gradients.

Funded by: StMWK                                 Targeted SDG: 7

Kompakt

We are working on work package 2, which deals with the interpretation of temperature data in the Bavarian Molasse Basin, as well as an estimation of heat storage potentials.

GeoSPOT - Augsburg

The research objective of the GeoSPOT project is the creation of a hydrogeological and geothermal database to estimate and improve the geothermal potential of the shallow quaternary aquifer in the wider area of Augsburg. Furthermore, the extension of the 3D-geological lithofaciesmodel of Munich (GeoPot-project) for user-specific applications is carried out.

FouMon

In this project, a low-cost, ultrasound-based sensor network for direct detection and determination of fouling and biofilms is developed for geothermal plants and open cooling circuits. The sensor network is supported by a self-learning predictive-maintenance algorithm that enables prediction of fouling formation based on hydrogeochemical simulations and models developed in the project.
