Index / Geothermal Energy / Related Environmental Issues

Geothermal has a higher capacity factor (a measure of the amount of real time during which a facility is used) than many other power sources. Unlike wind and solar resources, which are more dependent upon weather fluctuations, geothermal resources are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. While the carrier medium for geothermal electricity (water) must be properly managed, the source of geothermal energy, the Earth's heat, will be available indefinitely.

Matthijs Bonte presents the results of a hydrochemical and geomicrobial study of the effects of ground source heat pumps and aquifer thermal energy storage. The lack of a clear and scientifically underpinned risk-oriented management strategy implies that potentially unwanted risks might currently be taken at vulnerable locations such as near well fields used for drinking-water production, whilst at other sites the application of SGE is avoided without proper reasons. We have recognized three main issues that should be addressed to secure sustainable application of SGE - 1. Scientific research ... More →
