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
