Regional Energy Concept Goes Ahead (ERDWERK)
ERDWERK GmbH is responsible for investigating the deep and surface geothermal potential. The project is well underway and the initial results indicate that good to very good thermal and/or electrical potential from the deep and surface geothermal resources exist across the entire region.
The analysis shows that deep and near-surface geothermal energy can be used almost anywhere in the entire planning network for electricity generation and / or heat supply. The different uses in the municipalities can be attributed both to the depth of the thermal deepwater aquifer (here the Malm-Aquifer) as well as to regional differences in the geothermal gradient (elevation of the temperature increase with depth). Localities in the alpine region are predominantly located in geologically favorable valleys. Heating and cooling with geothermal energy near the surface is possible in RPV 18 as a whole.
