Transition from hydrocarbon production to geothermal heat storage in the Upper Rhine Graben – the DeepStor project

Eva Schill , Jens Grimmer , Katharina Schätzler , Kai Stricker , Judith Bremer & Thomas Kohl
The subsurface conditions of the Upper Rhine Graben are favorable for the development of novel geothermal utilization concepts. In particular, they allow optimization of energy use with flexible heat production and storage scenarios. A first potential analysis revealed an enormous storage potential of formerly used and well-explored oil fields. The involvement of former hydrocarbon reservoirs as components of geothermal concepts perfectly symbolizes the transition from the fossil-fuel age to the use of carbon-neutral renewable energies....
