Conference, workshop and excursion, the event offers diverse background and practical information of to surface near, medium-deep and deep geothermal energy in Northern Germany. Freiburg/Hannover, 17.08.2011 – today the organizers have published the program of 4. Norddeutscher Geothermietagung. The meeting in the GEO Centre Hannover offers excellent opportunities to learn about all aspects of geothermal energy in Northern Germany, as well as to establish new contacts. In addition to the Congress an accompanying exhibition, an evening get-together, a workshop and an excursion will be offered. The full program can be found here. Organizer is Enerchange Agency the Freiburger, event partners are the three institutes of the GEO Centre Hannover the Federal Institute for Geosciences and natural resources (BGR), the national Office for mining, energy and Geology (LBEG), the Leibniz Institute of applied geophysics (LIAG) – as well as the Economic Development Corporation of hannoverimpuls. The world’s leading service provider uses as a Gold sponsor for the drilling industry, Schlumberger, this excellent platform to call attention to its products.
Professional kicked off the event, there is a key after the welcome note by Frau Dr. Susanne Schmitt, the Chairman of the Board of GeoEnergy Celle e.V. This is followed by presentations on the near-surface, medium deep and deep geothermal energy. Among the contributions to the geothermal energy near-surface, inter alia Holger Jensen (State Office for Geology, mining and energy) will present the framework for use of geothermal energy in Lower Saxony, Germany. Marek Miara (Fraunhofer Institute for solar energy systems ISE) presented current results to the energy efficiency of heat pumps. For a geothermal project in Hamburg’s solution strategies in the lecture by Mark Hanna (geothermal power concept).
Finally, Rainer Tepe (Institute for solar energy research) presents the research project GeoSolar, a combination of solar and geothermal system designs. Furthermore, an excursion is to the Geothermal probe field offered by Schloss Herrenhausen. Geothermal energy deep in the area of will set out the framework for funding in the area under other Cornelia Viertl (Federal Ministry of the environment) deep geothermal energy. Dr. Gunter Zimmermann (Geoforschungszentrum Potsdam) reports on the latest developments in the project Gross Schonebeck. More project ideas give an in-depth insight in deep geothermal projects in Hannover and Munster. In the area of modelling Marcus Helms (State Office for Geology, mining and energy) will present the Geotectonic Atlas of Lower Saxony and the German North Sea as a 3D model, Dr. Jorn Bartels (geothermal Neubrandenburg) presents the simulation of development alternatives for planning and approval a geothermal heat supply plant on Usedom. On the second day of the Congress, a workshop for reservoir development, which gives an overview of the procedure of creation of drilling for geothermal systems follows. The 4th North Geothermietagung is the continuation of the hotspot-Hanover-days, past three years have occurred in the GEO Centre Hannover. Since this year, Enerchange is responsible for the implementation of this Symposium. Together with our event partners – the Federal Institute for Geosciences and natural resources (BGR), the national Office for mining, energy and Geology (LBEG) and the Leibniz Institute of applied geophysics (LIAG) – as well as hannoverimpuls, the Agency has the event for a two-day Conference offers parallel to the surface near and deep geothermal energy development.
