Section 4.8: Geoenergy

The Geothermal Research Platform Groß Schönebeck is a reference laboratory for the development of geothermal technologies in hydrothermal reservoir rock with low permeability. Two research wells form a geothermal doublet and give access to water-bearing horizons at depths between 3,9 and 4,4 km at temperatures of 150 °C.

Fluid Monitoring Lab

The lab contains devices that can be used to monitor chemical and physicochemical parameters in natural and synthetic geothermal fluids.
