Register now:

The International Symposium on Underground Thermal Energy Storage (UTES) Storage is key! Start now!, scheduled for 28.02.2024 at the Messe Offenburg-Ortenau, offers an exceptional platform for participants to gain insights into the current developments in underground thermal energy storage. This event is an IEA Geothermal and GEOTHERMICA Initiative providing an excellent opportunity to engage with experts across various aspects of thermal storage technology. Don’t miss the networking possibilities in the evening after the symposium.

With the rapid expansion of renewable energies, energy storage on various time scales is of particular importance in robust and resilient energy systems. Underground heat storage systems have a very large capacity compared to tanks above ground. Therefore, they are ideally suited for the conservation of surplus energy generated during periods of abundance, such as in the summer, to be utilized during periods of energy production deficits, such as in the winter.

The symposium will address Underground Heat storage systems (UTES) in its various forms, such as ATES, Aquifer storage systems, BTES, Borehole thermal energy storage, MTES Mine water thermal energy storage, PTES, Pit thermal energy storage and others.

More information on the programme will follow soon.
