Conference Proceedings: The Bad Blumau geothermal project: a low temperature, sustainable and environmentally benign power plant

Abstract

Four deep geothermal boreholes have been drilled between 2010 and 2014 with a total length of 12.3 km. One borehole in the Styrian Basin was not yet completed in May 2014. A district heating scheme was established at Ried im Innkreis in the Upper Austrian Molasse Basin. Geothermal production started here in February 2014. The electrical power production from geothermal declined in the period 2010–2014. The plant in Simbach-Braunau was dismantled.

The number of ground source heat pumps shows a steady increase since 2010. The total number of units based on DHE is estimatedas high as 70,000 having a capacity of 840 MWth and 1,386 GWh/yr based on sale figures provided by heat pump suppliers.
