Day 7: Geothermal energy

23 March 2017

EnergyDays are English spoken!

The topic 'Geothermal energy: contribution to the energy transition and technical challenges' was presented.


Geothermal energy is available 24/7 and can thus potentially complement the intermittent renewables solar and wind energy that come with strong diurnal and seasonal variations. This EnergyDay will focus on the future potential contribution and role of geothermal energy in the Netherlands and abroad, and discuss the technical challenges that we need to address to tap into this underground heat source.
