Calculation model

ThermoGIS shows the technical and economic potential for 'direct use' geothermal heat extraction in the form of a large number of maps. Using DoubletCalc1D, the technical model first determines the technical feasibility of geothermal hot water production (flow rate, power) per 1x1 km grid cell. Then, using an economic model, the economic potential is calculated.

Two alternative scenarios are calculated to determine the effect of stimulation and addition of a heat pump.
