Due to increasing objectives of reducing CO2 emission and gas consumption, municipalities are looking for possible sustainable energy sources. The municipality of Enschede is also exploring its options.
The municipality of Enschede wants to investigate the use of geothermal energy as its durability is beyond dispute. Before starting costly drilling activities and the technical elaboration, NNTS will start with a feasibility study that includes the technical and financial aspects.
The goal is to deliver a consultancy report that is based on the potentials of geothermic heat and the possible consumption profile. Technical aspects, financial effects and possible risks of deep geothermal energy in Enschede are taken into account and will be discussed in different scenarios.
