International Geothermiekonferenz

Around 230 visitors discussed during the 6th International Geothermiekonferenz from 19 to 20 may in Freiburg on the current challenges and projects of deep geothermal energy. Freiburg was once again haunt of the Geothermiebranche: Circular 230 experts from home and abroad met in the framework of the two-day sixth international Geothermiekonferenz, to discuss the current challenges and the future of the Geothermiebranche. Nearly 50 speakers informed on the IGC 2010 about topics such as reservoir development and management, power plant engineering, geothermal energy in the local energy supply, financing, and seismicity. At the end of the Conference, Ruggero Bertani, Enel green power gave a preview, which could contribute to the geothermal energy in the coming decades for the energy supply. Among other things the Congress Forum on the seismicity encountered keen interest of the visitors. Nearly 100 participants followed the presentations by experts such as Dr. Stefan Baisch by Q-con or Dr. Christian BoNNEMANN by the Federal Institute for Geosciences and natural resources to this Topic that has gained importance since the events in Basel and Landau.

It revealed Dr. Baisch in his presentation that seismic risks already well can be simulated by Geothermieprojekten with relatively simple mathematical models. All speakers agreed that a transparent publicity of the project initiators is essential in terms of possible Seismizitaten. An assessment that consistently reported also at the business dinner to the acceptance of Geothermieprojekten. Also the presentations of international speakers about were well-attended by Dr. Graeme Beardsmore, who reported on the development of deep geothermal energy in Australia, by Sara Montomolli, who spoke to the use of geothermal energy in Italy or geothermally-powered heat supply in the Paris Basin spoke of adversity, by Pierre. The projects presented reflect the steady growth of the geothermal capacity in recent years.

According to final speakers Ruggero Bertani, the worldwide available electrical power is Since 2005 by approx. 350 MW annually grew on a value of current 10,700 MW. By 2050 a total capacity of 140,000 MW could be his forecast to realize. Last but not least the participants also used the Conference to bring in technical questions of geothermal energy on the latest. In particular the hole as cost-most part a was stood in the focus of the Conference. So Celle was illuminated, inter alia by experts of the drill master school the essential aspects of the development of the reservoir, as well as in a Congress Forum discussed what measures help to minimize the risk of costs of drilling. Bottom line here: the better the preliminary investigations of the subsoil and the preparation of the bore, the lower the likelihood of unpleasant surprises. In addition to the professional exchanges, the international Geothermiekonferenz bot again ideal conditions this year, to meet with potential business partners in the conversation”, emphasizes Marissa Waltz by Sankar Kailash & partners from Freiburg.

The international Geothermiekonferenz is organised by the Agency Enerchange. The Conference documentation including an expert band to the reservoir development, the Congress band, as well as all presentations on a CD plus VAT can be ordered via for 300 euro. The 7. International Geothermiekonferenz will take place from 10 to 11 May 2011. (Marcus Brian)
