Delft Aardwarmte Project 2015… and counting Towards geothermal energy as a sustainable solution, through research and education 1
DAP: Short intro Founded in 2007 by Applied Earth Science students and alumni Non-profit organisation, 4-man board: 2 students, 2 alumni Initial goal 2007: drilling rig on the campus asap! Supported by a large network of Dutch mining engineers Supported by industry partners and government Quickly received permits and made initial well design 2
Research and education The Delft Geothermal Project was founded by Applied Earth Science students and alumni in 2007 4

Delta - Jaargang “41 Nummer 26 - ‘Het nieuwe zwarte goud’ “Een mooi demonstratieproject voor duurzame energie op eigen terrein”, aldus rector Fokkema (zelf ook geofysicus). De studenten werken samen met tuinders uit de omgeving, die het hete water willen gebruiken om hun kassen mee te verwarmen.” DAP in the media
DAP research: status 2015 7 20 BSc. Projects 16 MSc. Projects Popular course in geothermal energy 2012: start of 4-year EFRO research programme -PhD research (Cees Willems) -Post-doc researcher (Hamid Nick) -A Professor in Geothermics (Prof. David Bruhn)
DAP: The future 8 More students, more research projects! Geothermics as a research group in Delft Deep geothermal energy in the NL? Well interference monitoring Composite casing for geothermal wells Geothermal well logging Efficient energy extraction from low-enthalpy wells Geothermal energy in smart grids etc Campus well: business case continuously revised
MVD1: Still a great idea 9 Sustainable heat source for the new campus Unique and vast research potential for TU Delft and industry Several TU Delft disciplines combined into 1 project Once in a lifetime opportunity for all parties involved Is a lot less ugly than a wind mill. And is much quieter too. Goal in 2015: drilling rig on the campus ASAP!
