In a great brochure shared by Warmtenetwerk Foundation, the Geothermal Platform Platform, DAGO and EBN, together with partners in the Netherlands, a starting point is given for municipalities looking into geothermal energy for utilization in district heating networks.

A fantastic great brochure released by a group in the Netherlands comprised of Warmtenetwerk Foundation, the Geothermal Platform Platform, DAGO and EBN, together with partners from the heat sector and the geothermal heat sector.

The brochure aims to give municipalities some guidance and starting point to explore geothermal heat in (district) heating network. Unfortunately, the brochure is only available in Dutch.

The brochure describes that for sustainability of the buildings, the environment and the realization of the heat transition, there is a role for geothermal energy in heat networks. That is why all parties involved have compiled this informative brochure.

In this brochure you will find information about geothermal heat in heat networks and the possible importance of this for your municipality. Through this brochure we want to offer you a starting point in your research into what geothermal heat could mean for your municipality. Geothermal heat and heat networks are inextricably linked, which is why this brochure looks specifically at this combination. This concerns heat supply for homes and buildings.

Subjects:

  • The heat transition
  • Making homes and properties more sustainable
  • What is a heat network?
  • What is geothermal heat?
  • How do we connect geothermal heat in heat networks?
  • What considerations should I take as a municipality?
  • Estimating the geothermal heat potential
