Geothermal storage for densely populated areas

Geothermal storage for densely populated areas
Geothermal probes and heat pumps provide an effective alternative to oil heating, but they aren’t suitable for use in densely populated areas where probes in close proximity extract too much heat from the ground. However, using probes for heat storage as well could unlock their considerable potential. Thanks to geothermal probes and heat pumps, it’s possible for heat to be channelled directly from the subsurface to houses.

Drilling to expand geothermal electricity output

Scientists in Iceland have drilled into a reservoir of extremely hot water that has the potential to greatly expand geothermal electricity output. Now ETH geoscientists have for the first time been able to produce a realistic simulation of how such reservoirs are created. They predict that these natural phenomena are widespread in volcanic areas.

New Siemens SST-400 GEO steam turbine for geothermal power plants

With a rating of up to 60 megawatts, the new SST-400 GEO steam turbine for geothermal applications combines the proven casing and turbine-generator package (gearbox, generator and base frame) of the Siemens SST-400 steam turbine with the steam path technologies developed, tested and applied by the steam turbine service provider TurboCare. The SST-400 GEO steam turbine can be deployed in geothermal power plants with different thermal fluids.
