Geothermal Energy Systems: Exploration, Development, and Utilization (352764461X) cover image
Presenting boundary conditions for the economic and environmental utilization of geothermal technology, this is the first book to provide basic knowledge on the topic in such detail.
The editor is the coordinator of the European Geothermic Research Initiative, while the authors are experts for the various geological situations in Europe with high temperature reservoirs in shallow and deep horizons.
With its perspectives for R&D in geothermic technology concluding each chapter, this ready reference will be of great value to scientists and decision-makers in research and politics, as well as those giving courses in petroleum engineering, for example.

Research activities of Ernst Huenges aim at providing an environmentally benign and sustainable geothermal energy and subsurface storage of heat and cold. In his focus the supply of geothermal energy should become site-independent in the long-term and tailored according to demand and thus supplementing, at the same time, other renewable energy sources. This requires interdisciplinary approaches and synergies seen in connection with a series of developing fields of research involving the editor's experimental expertise on processes in deep reservoirs.

"It can be said that this book achieves his goal to be a reference of great value to scientists and decision-makers in research and politics, as well as those giving courses in petroleum engineering, for example. It provides a good overview on the state of the art of all the aspects, which need to be considered, when installing an Enhanced Geothermal Systems Plant. It should not be missed in the bookshelf's of people dealing with geothermal use." (Corrosion News, January 2011)
