  • Impacts of Shallow Geothermal Energy on Groundwater Quality

    The use of shallow geothermal energy (SGE) systems to acclimatize buildings has increased exponentially in the Netherlands and worldwide. In certain areas, SGE systems are constructed in aquifers also used for drinking water supply raising the question of potential groundwater quality impact. Impacts of Shallow Geothermal Energy on Groundwater Quality provides a hydrochemical and geomicrobial ...

  • Geothermal Energy Technologies

    Technology Overview   Nowhere is the raw power of geothermal resources more evident than at the Old Faithful geyser at Yellowstone National Park. (Joel Renner)  Geothermal energy is natural heat from the Earth's interior where temperatures reach greater than 7000°F. The heat is brought to the surface as steam or hot water—created when water flows through heated, permeable ...


  • Modeling geothermal wells using SVHeat and SVFlux

    Numerical modeling of geothermal processes has received increased attention in recent years. The process of installing geothermal heating systems in residential homes and cottages is one application of numerical models. These systems typically involve drilling between one and three wells on a particular property. Heat exchangers then act as a pump and remove heat from the ground in order to heat ...


  • Geothermal Energy... Power from the Depths

    The Earth's crust is a bountiful source of energy—and fossil fuels are only part of the story. Heat or thermal energy is by far the more abundant resource. To put it in perspective, the thermal energy in the uppermost six miles of the Earth's crust amounts to 50,000 times the energy of all oil and gas resources in the world! The word 'geothermal' literally means 'Earth' plus 'heat.' ...

  • Talking Point: Geothermal systems and the value of maintenance programmes

    Mike Deed, Managing Director of Geoquip Water Solutions, is the author of Talking Point in the October issue of Groundwater Engineering. He focuses on the huge benefits of installing a geothermal system and the importance ...
