Conference Paper
Full-text available
Within the EU Geothermica program, the Heatstore research project has been started. Since Underground Heat Storage is expected to become one of the key elements in the energy transition, the aim of the Heatstore research project is to develop new technologies and knowledge on this topic. Globally, The Netherlands has a leading position in Aquifer T...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In their paper on the International legal status of the use of shallow geothermal energy, Haehnlein et al. (2010), showed that in many countries there is hardly no or very limited regulation regarding open well and closed loop geothermal systems. The lack of any regulation seems to be attractive to apply the technology, but the European RegeoCities...
Chapter
This chapter describes the application of open-loop wells to ground-source heat pumps (GSHPs) and to seasonal thermal storage for heating and cooling systems. The application of groundwater wells requires detailed knowledge of the aquifer. ¹1An aquifer is a subsurface geologic feature that is capable to yield large quantities of water (eg, a layer...
Article
High-temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) is an important technique for energy conservation. A controlling factor for the economic feasibility of HT-ATES is the recovery efficiency. Due to the effects of density-driven flow (free convection), HT-ATES systems applied in permeable aquifers typically have lower recovery efficiencies th...
Article
Full-text available
Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) is used for seasonal storage of large quantities of thermal energy. Due to the increasing demand for sustainable energy, the number of ATES systems has increased rapidly, which has raised questions on the effect of ATES systems on their surroundings as well as their thermal performance. Furthermore, the increas...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Application of aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) is growing rapidly to provide sustainable heating and cooling to buildings. However, presence of soil and groundwater contaminants in many urban environments limits applicability of ATES and hampers redevelopment of these sites. Combination of ATES and remediation is therefore considered a promis...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This study illustrates that several processes contribute to groundwater quality effects of ATES systems, in which the effect of mixing is predominant for the lowtemperature ATES systems studied. Only for ATES systems in aquifers with relatively homogeneous groundwater quality, minor temperature effects could be observed. At higher temperatures (>30...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes a case study on HT-ATES in the community of Vierpolders, The Netherlands, meant for storage of excess heat from a geothermal doublet.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes the practical experiences and geochemical impact of water treatment methods to prevent clogging of the wells by mineral precipitation.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The concept of Underground Thermal Energy Storage (UTES) has evolved from theory to the point where system feasibility has been demonstrated technically and commercially in particular for low-temperature applications. These types of systems are typically referred to as Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES). One of the most common applications of AT...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The use of Underground Thermal Energy Storage (UTES) has been growing fast in the Netherlands. The authorities wish to further stimulate this growth to help realising the national targets to reduce energy use and emissions. At the same time the application of increasing numbers of UTES systems has resulted in questions on their impact on soil (eco)...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the Port of Rotterdam the long-term presence of various industrial activities has resulted in soil and groundwater contamination. This contamination is substantial, complex and is usually not limited to one particular site but affects (ground)water systems at a regional scale. This being the case, site-specific approaches are neither effective n...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The surface water system in the western part of The Netherlands is not able to deal with the current demands on the system: the risk of flooding due to storm water peak flows is too high, and the water quality in summer is below the Dutch standards due to salinization and low supply of good quality surface water. Enlarging the surface water system...
Article
In situ iron removal is conducted routinely in a number of European countries. A volume of oxygenated water is injected, and subsequently a larger volume of ground water can be pumped with a lower iron concentration than is found in native ground water. The underlying reaction mechanism has not been well described so far, and the process has not be...
