Geothermal Energy



PERIOD: 2010 - 2011

BUDGET: € 2,101,496.00

This R+D+i project researches and develops systems to extract geothermal energy using new, filler materials.

This project seeks to study, design, build and monitor a geothermal power system using different filler materials, including recycled materials which would maximize energy efficiency and reduce implementation costs in this type of facility.

The most important variables when undertaking tests focus on performing experiments that combine different drilling types, depths and filler materials.

Likewise, a variety of drills will be used for energy exchange. Based on the results obtained from these test drills, a series of guidelines will be established to obtain the most appropriate conditions for the design, construction and type to achieve maximum energy efficiency.
