MUSE – Web-based information systems for shallow geothermal energy

Geoscientific information is of fundamental importance for efficient and sustainable use of shallow geothermal energy. Lack of such information hinders implementation of shallow geothermal systems and increase uncertainty for investments in such systems. Web-based information systems have been recognised asRead more

MUSE – Closed-loop systems requirements & advantages

Applications of shallow geothermal energy either use closed-loop or open-loop systems. Here we explain the requirements and advantages of closed-loop systems and in follow-up blog we dive into open-loop systems. In closed-loop systems a heat carrier fluid circulates in pipesRead more

MUSE – Differences between deep and shallow geothermal energy

The term geothermal energy covers a wide field of applications at different depth and temperature levels or based on different technologies to extract geothermal heat. Although all kind of geothermal energy originates in the Earth’s interior, the technologies clearly differRead more
