Photonics for Deep Geothermal Energy Harvesting

Mittwoch/Wednesday, 07.11.2012, Neuchâtel

The most recent SATW energy report Zukunft Stromversorgung Schweiz is stating that Switzerland has a very high potential to use geothermal energy for heating and for generating electricity. However, geothermal energy harvesting does not make economic sense with present drilling and energy extracting technologies. Thus its useful potential is very limited.
In this workshop we will address new drilling technologies, especially based on Photonics, which could have the potential to overcome some of these economic challenges.

This workshop concentrates on the role of Photonics to drill economically to access deep geothermal energy.

In collaboration with EPFL, Optics & Photonics Technology Lab and the Centre for Hydrogeology and Geothermics (CHYN) at the University of Neuchâtel.

10:30-11:30 General Assembly (Members only)
11:30-12:00 Lab tour (for all participants of the workshop)
