Save energy and costs through environmentally friendly geothermal energy

Geothermal energy: Environmentally friendly energy from the soil

Around half of the energy used in a building is used for heating and cooling. Programs such as the European Energy Directive 2050 aim to reduce carbon dioxide and expand renewable energy. Accordingly, the share of renewable energies must increase to 55% by 2050. In 2010, the share was still at 15%. This means that around 60% of finite energy resources will have to be saved over the next 30 years.

Climate change is evident in Europe and is already noticeable due to extreme events and increasing heat days. The resulting increased energy demand for heating and cooling can in future only be covered by the further expansion of renewable energies. Geothermal energy ensures the efficient use of renewable energies, is independent of oil and gas, saves costs and reduces CO2 emissions.

When using geothermal energy, the energy stored in the ground is constantly regenerated by solar radiation and geothermal heat flux. The energy is available from a depth of 1.5 meters and is fully independent of weather or season usable. Even at a depth of 10 meters, the temperature is largely constant at 8-12 ° C.


Determine and use geothermal potentials

With our scientifically proven procedures we analyze the geothermal potential of your property.
Specifically, the temperature of the soil surface or the thermal conductivity of the soil is determined.

  • We estimate the near-surface geothermal potential of your property
  • The thermal conductivity of the loose ground is recorded to a depth of 10 meters
  • The analysis gives you information about the suitability of your property to save your heating and cooling costs
  • We provide you with this information in the form of printed maps, digital datasets or as a web service – clear, clear and easy to understand
  • With our online map service we offer you a dynamic potential calculation and evaluation
  • We are happy to advise and support you in the implementation

Temperature of the soil surface [°C]
From a depth of about 8-10 m, the temperature of the substrate is constant throughout the year at about 10°C.
The geothermal systems used at these depths are collectively referred to as geothermal collectors.

Geothermal energy in the home
Heat from the Earth’s interior ensures independence from oil and gas, saving money and providing additional opportunities, such as Ice and snowy footpaths and parking.
