Global Geothermal Energy Summit 2017

Date: 29th November 2017 - 30th November 2017 Location: Amsterdam - The Netherlands

The Geothermal Energy Association (GEA) estimates that only 6.5 percent of total global potential has been tapped so far. With recent developments in the industry, unlocking the potential for new untapped sources of geothermal energy production, we are entering a new dawn for the geothermal energy industry.

ACI’s 5th Global Geothermal Energy Summit will take place in Amsterdam, Netherlands. With The Dutch governments ambitious plans to have all residential buildings to be off gas in 2050, geothermal energy has an important part to play in this transition. The conference will give the latest updates on the global geothermal energy market and its new developments. Showcasing new techniques and technologies that are paving the way for the sector and expanding the geographical regions where exploration can take place.

With Geothermal energy production being one of the lowest forms of CO2 producing energy sources, its development and worldwide deployment is vital in the reduction in worldwide targets for CO2 reduction. The two day event will provide key insights into the opportunities, challenges, global trends and policies, through expert led case study presentations, interactive sessions and discussions giving practical examples of planning, financing and technological strategies shaping the future of geothermal energy production whilst networking with industry peers from across the geothermal power value chain.

Exclusive Site Visit : Trias Westland

A Geothermal heat plant in Westland, Netherlands
On 28th November, a day prior to the conference, a limited number of attendees will receive the unique opportunity to visit Trias Westland plant in Westland. There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are limited and allocated on first come – first served basis. Please register your attendance for the site visit when booking for the conference.

Trias Westland, Geothermal heat plant in Naaldwijk, South Holland is co-owned by three third-party investors – Dutch municipal utilities HVC & Capturam, as well as national greenhouse co-operative Royal Flora Holland.

The first geothermal deal in the Netherlands to limited-recourse elements – a landmark that may mean it serves as the blueprint for the sector

Trias Westland has existed as a concept for nearly a decade, and its ultimate owners are a coalition of 49 local greenhouse companies, which are also acting as heat off takers.

In Westland alone, these companies collectively use as much gas for heating as 800,000 households, and as a result have been the driving force behind geothermal development in the country, seeing it as a way to lower their energy costs and move away from    conventional heat sources.

On Tuesday 28th, November 2017, a limited group of Global Geothermal Energy Summit delegates will have a unique    opportunity to visit the project. There is no extra charge to join the site visit, although places are limited and allocated on a first served basis. Please confirm your attendance when booking for the conference.

The economic design of a future-proof, secure and affordable energy supply is very exciting and highly interesting. The potential of energy efficiency and renewable energy is huge and absolutely fascinating. The topic has always interested me, as mentioned above.

However, it lacks good information and education, which is all feasible. I also miss a lot of criticism in the public debate, sometimes even lacks a discussion, for example, the issue of energy efficiency. The media coverage is usually very one-sided, in favor of the previous energy structure, and also presented in simplified form.

Renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy saving are the solutions for the energy supply of the future. Continuing the existing structure also requires large investments, but these are not viable due to limited resources and negative impacts on the climate.

In addition, a decentralized energy supply has a lot in common with new media, in both of them everyone can become producers and consumers.

ECM Technologies produces metal products by the means of ECM (Electrochemical Machining) a technology based on electrolysis in 3D complex geometries. This metal machining technology makes it feasible to machine hard and impossible to machine metal alloys in complex shapes and high volumes. Under the brand name of EC-Profile the technology is developed to produce the components for the MtM (Metal to Metal) motors for drilling. Conventional PDM/ PCP are produced containing a polymer layer that can be used in an environment to a temperature of max 185 degrees C. With a MtM motor it will be feasible to drill deeper and hotter up to 300 degrees C plus. This makes the MtM motor an interesting motor for Geothermal applications.

EC-Profile is producing tubes (Stator helix tube) with this complex internal helical geometry and will also produce the rotor with this helical structure on the OD. Combining both Stator and Rotor production in house will give the ability to produce a motor with the best fit and seal. This technology will also be applicable to produce “perfect” threading for down hole tubing with an optimized sealing as it will be machined without any contact and external force giving a perfect round threading in the tube. The technology can also be used for producing cooling fins on the interior of a tube for maximizing heat transfer in different applications but can also be applied for anti-scaling structures on the inside of tubes.
