Issue

Fossil fuel dependency

There is a strong dependency on fossil fuels.

The large scale application of geothermal heath as a renewable energy source is strongly being inhibited. This is caused by the required deep drilling, which causes large geological risks and high costs.

Solution

Low Temperature Geothermal Heat (LTG)

LTG is possible by applying long, shallow horizontal filters in combination with a heat pump technology. By using LTG, large, complex and expensive equipment is not needed and geological risks are limited. Because of this, LTG becomes available for a larger market.
