The industrial sector consumes a lot of energy and emits large quantities of GHGs. The installation of geothermal systems can significantly reduce GHG emissions from industries and offer stable and predictable long-term energy costs, competitive with natural gas and fuel oil. These systems can be used to heat and cool buildings or be included in certain processes (alone or in a dual energy system). As for underground thermal energy storage, it allows the recovery of surplus heat produced by industries by keeping it underground for later use by the producer or by other buildings in the vicinity.
Example of an industrial geothermal project : Janssen Pharmaceutica, Beerse
(industrial, commercial, institutional)
Geothermal heat networks are collective thermal energy production and distribution systems designed to serve a large building or several buildings, for heating and cooling purposes (alone or in a dual energy system). They can be included in large-scale real estate projects, such as office towers, campuses, hospitals, shopping centers, innovation districts and "eco-neighborhoods". The integration of heat networks in these buildings significantly reduces their GHG emissions, improves their energy efficiency and offers stable and predictable long-term energy costs, competitive with natural gas and fuel oil.
Example of a geothermal heating network : Munich-Riem District
Energy costs in the greenhouse sector are significant, especially in large greenhouses that require a significant amount of energy to maintain an optimal temperature. The installation of geothermal systems (alone or in a dual-energy system) can significantly reduce GHG emissions from greenhouse facilities and offer stable and predictable long-term energy costs, competitive with natural gas and fuel oil. In addition to the traditional use of geothermal energy to heat greenhouses, it is also possible to use geothermal systems to heat water for plants, to store excess heat in the summer for reuse in the winter and to heat and cool adjacent buildings.
