MUSE – Open-loop systems requirements & advantages

Groundwater is a valuable natural source especially for drinking water. Additionally, using ground water for energy extraction is common in many countries for both heating and cooling. In general, these so called open-loop systems are more efficient than closed-loop systems.Read more

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
