Excursion to the FOME-BES groundwater monitoring facility in Utrecht

Last updated: 9 April 2017 at 20:41

Energy Club is organizing an afternoon excursion to the FOME-BES groundwater monitoring facility in Utrecht on the 24th of April.
In Utrecht, innovative DTS fibre-optic monitoring is being used in the research project FOME-BES to improve the performance of cold and heat storage systems. Three-dimensional underground fibre-optic networks are installed at three different locations in the city of Utrecht, providing for data on the variations in temperature profiles around cold and heat storage systems during eight seasons. This will offer new insights on how to optimize the subsoil energy balance of cold and heat storage systems and by that, on how to optimize the energy and cost effectiveness of cold and heat storage systems as a whole.

Event will be partially in Dutch, but free translation services are offered ;)

The event is for free (including transport), but subscription is needed. For subscription click here.
