New Platform for Geothermal Energy Developed at RWTH

April 3rd, 2023 | by

The Institute of Geomechanics and Subsurface Engineering at RWTH has developed a calculation tool for the “Geothermie in NRW” internet platform to simplify the process of planning geothermal plants. The Geological Survey of North Rhine-Westphalia (GD NRW) provides the platform on behalf of the North Rhine-Westphalian Ministry of Economics and now provides users with the option of quickly dimensioning geothermal probes and probe fields between 100 and 1000 meters to cover any heating and cooling requirements.

“Geothermal energy is an essential part of achieving Germany’s net zero targets and the further developed “Geothermal in NRW” platform is a powerful tool to support this. With our calculation tool, we want to help tap the potential of geothermal energy, whether for building or district heating and cooling or even electricity generation,” explains Institute Director Professor Raul Fuentes.
