  • Utilisation of deep geothermal energy for heating purposes

    The Hot-Dry-Rock-(HDR) technology allows a location-independent utilisation of geothermal heat, because aquifers in deep formations, i.e. layers filled with water, are not necessary. The flow paths for the circulating water in a depth of 4 km are created by hydraulic fracturing of existing gaps. Due to the fact that this new technology is quite cost-intensive, high annual load duration of the ...
