Liu, W. Koornneef, J. van den Broek, M. Publication year 2018 Abstract High temperature aquifer thermal energy storage (HT-ATES) can contribute to the integration of renewable energy sources in the energy system, the replacement of fossil fuel-based heat supply and the utilization of surplus heat from industrial sources. However, there is limited understanding on the drivers, barriers and conditions of HT-ATES implementation. The objective of this study is to partly fill this knowledge gap by developing a methodological framework for a quick scan on market potential of HT-ATES. Based on the application of this framework to a case study in the Netherlands, it is concluded that the proposed method is suitable for a pre-feasibility analysis on the HT-ATES market potential. The investigated case study has a planned district heating system with geothermal energy as the heat source. HT-ATES is found to be cost-effective compared to a reference technology, i.e. a natural gas boiler, in the scenarios under existing and more sustainable alternative policies. The lifetime of HT-ATES and the size of heat demand have a strong influence on the market potential. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd Subject 2015 GeoSGE - Sustainable Geo EnergyELSS - Earth, Life and Social SciencesGeological Survey NetherlandsGeosciences2015 EnergyDistrict heatingGeothermal energyHigh temperature aquifer thermal energy storageHT-ATESMarket potential assessment To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:30af8a21-22ff-46de-9ca6-94ff99b43e07 DOI https://doi.org/10.1016/j.energy.2018.01.072 TNO identifier 787783 ISSN 0360-5442 Source Energy, 147, 477-489 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
