Research Association Geothermal Energy Services
In this case the concerns of urban development in
- and mining law
should be coordinated.
At the same time the multifaceted scheduling aspects of architecture, geosciences, supply- and building services- engineering, drilling techniques and technical construction have to be combined. In the urban agglomeration “Ruhrgebiet” warm mine water und sub surfaced infrastructures of former mineral coal mining should be integrated in urban development projects.
At first the higher investment costs of a geothermal energy plant compared to conventional heating can’t be marked for many building-owners within the scope of their construction loan and second poses an unknown terrain for energy-suppliers. Because of this the routing-projects should point out a way into a large technical and economical usage of geothermal heat.
To transact those aims the research association geothermal energy lead managed by the GeothermalCenter initialized the urban-development supply-project “Geothermie 2010”.
Up to the year 2010 not less than 10 urban-development routing-projects in NRW the feasibility of geothermal-supply should be surveyed in aspects of
- communal scheduling-processes
- technical feasibility
- and economical feasibility.
