Over the past weeks, we have presented the European Geothermal Fluid Atlas through a social media campaign published on the REFLECT Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. To sum up, read some of the key aspects presented:
- The ultimate goal of REFLECT is to increase the share of geothermal energy within the European energy market.
- For improving the efficiency of geothermal power plants, REFLECT aims to prevent problems related to fluid chemistry rather than treat them.
- The geothermal data collected during the project life will be implemented in a European Geothermal Fluid Atlas and in predictive models allowing to provide recommendations on how to best operate geothermal systems.
- The Fluid Atlas will provide investors and geothermal operators with valuable information for the development of geothermal projects.
- The target of the European Geothermal Fluid Atlas is on the fluids which are used for generating electricity.
- The Fluid Atlas will offer relevant geothermal data from more than 20 European countries.
- The European Geothermal Fluid Atlas will present relevant geothermal data including geography, geology, depth range, physical, chemical and microbial properties.
- For regions with high data coverage, e.g. the Netherlands, an operational geothermal risk map will provide information on the potential risks and chemical reactions in specific geological formations
The beta version of the European Geothermal Fluid Atlas will be available in January 2022. In the meantime, stay tuned by subscribing to the newsletter and follow the social media channels!
