This document presents Deliverable 7.2 “Mapping and Risk Assessment” (UNIBO, M30) and provides consortium partners with a general overview of the qualitative and quantitative potential of GEOTeCH technologies (a combination of auger drilling technology, spiral geoexchangers, and dual source heat pump) in Europe. The key indicators used for mapping are the results of the activity performed in Task 7.1 (M1-M30). A specific procedure tailored on GEOTeCH technologies and combining different information sources was adopted to define the indicators. Relevant inputs were provided by Work Package 2 (drilling), WP3 (geoexchange) and WP4 (heat pump). The purpose of this document is to present the three final maps of the activity at European level: 1 the map of sustainable drilling conditions (up to 50 m depth); a drillability index was realised to identify the potential of the GEOTeCH drilling machine in different geological and hydrogeological conditions; 2 the map of thermal parameters at appropriate depths (up to 50 m depth); estimations of ground temperature and depth and thickness of neutral zone, where the weather ambient becomes negligible, were performed, to identify the optimum depth of installation of GEOTeCH heat exchanger; 3 the map of areas suitable for the installation of innovative GEOTeCH technologies; a suitability index was realised to provide a qualitative evaluation of the potential of market introduction and practical application of integrated GEOTeCH technology (drilling + heat exchanger + dual source heat pump). Together with the Market Assessment (D7.1, M18), the maps provided in the present Deliverable will be used by Project Consortium Members to develop the Business Models (D7.3, M36), the Business Plans (D7.4, M48) and the Final Plan for the Exploitation of Results (D7.6, M48) of the GEOTeCH Project technological outputs.

Abstract

This document presents Deliverable 7.2 “Mapping and Risk Assessment” (UNIBO, M30) and provides consortium partners with a general overview of the qualitative and quantitative potential of GEOTeCH technologies (a combination of auger drilling technology, spiral geoexchangers, and dual source heat pump) in Europe. The key indicators used for mapping are the results of the activity performed in Task 7.1 (M1-M30). A specific procedure tailored on GEOTeCH technologies and combining different information sources was adopted to define the indicators. Relevant inputs were provided by Work Package 2 (drilling), WP3 (geoexchange) and WP4 (heat pump). The purpose of this document is to present the three final maps of the activity at European level: 1 the map of sustainable drilling conditions (up to 50 m depth); a drillability index was realised to identify the potential of the GEOTeCH drilling machine in different geological and hydrogeological conditions; 2 the map of thermal parameters at appropriate depths (up to 50 m depth); estimations of ground temperature and depth and thickness of neutral zone, where the weather ambient becomes negligible, were performed, to identify the optimum depth of installation of GEOTeCH heat exchanger; 3 the map of areas suitable for the installation of innovative GEOTeCH technologies; a suitability index was realised to provide a qualitative evaluation of the potential of market introduction and practical application of integrated GEOTeCH technology (drilling + heat exchanger + dual source heat pump). Together with the Market Assessment (D7.1, M18), the maps provided in the present Deliverable will be used by Project Consortium Members to develop the Business Models (D7.3, M36), the Business Plans (D7.4, M48) and the Final Plan for the Exploitation of Results (D7.6, M48) of the GEOTeCH Project technological outputs.
