Task 1.3: Hydrothermal heat exploitation and storage

Geothermal electricity production is only one way to use the deep underground. Other opportunities are the extraction of geothermal heat for domestic or industrial purposes, and the storage of heat to address the seasonal variability of heat demand.

A variety of experimental and numerical methods will be employed both at basin and at lab scale, to support prospection, exploration and implementation within the “Geothermie 2020” project.
