Publication year 2014 Abstract A resource and performance assessment methodology has been developed to designate prospective high permeable clastic aquifers and to assess the amount of potential geothermal energy in the Netherlands. It builds from the wealth of deep subsurface data from oil and gas exploration and production which is publicly and digitally available. The performance assessment resulted in e.g. potential maps giving an overview of the expected doublet power which can be retrieved on an economic basis and a potential indicator map (figure 3), which provides insight in subsurface suitability for specific applications. These maps can be interactively accessed in the web-based portal ThermoGIS www.thermogis.nl. This application complements existing subsurface information systems available in the Netherlands and supports the geothermal community in assessing the feasibility of a geothermal system at any location and provides a non-expert insight in the geothermal energy potential on a national and regional scale.
