1 IGD Greece 2002 Aristoteles University, Thessaloniki Possibilities for Heating and Cooling through Underground Thermal Energy Storage in the Mediterranean area Burkhard Sanner and Halime Paksoy Institute of Applied Geosciences Justus-Liebig-University, Giessen, Germany Chemistry Department Çukurova University, Adana, Turkey

2 Underground Thermal Energy Storage! Because of the climatic conditions around the Mediterranean sea and on the islands, cooling is the premier task of building thermal energy systems.! The systems used currently almost all depend on refrigeration cycles driven by electricity (compression chillers) or high-temperature heat (absorption chillers). The result is a tremendous need for energy just for space cooling.! In places where at times enough cold (winter air, rivers from mountains, etc.) exist, Underground Thermal Energy Storage is a very effective method to save energy.

3 Underground Thermal Energy Storage Aquifer Storage (ATES) Borehole Storage (BTES) Cavern Storage (CTES) Alternatives of Underground Thermal Energy Storage

Keuper) Ladin (Muschelkalk) Geological cross-section at the Neckarsulm BTES site Geology: - Mean underground thermal conductivity until 35 m depth λ = 2 W/m/K - Mean volumetric heat capacity of the ground c v = 3 MJ/m³K - Groundwater level is between 10 and 15 m below ground level - The layers with marls have very low hydraulic conductivity (k f m/s). - The limestone below 70 m depth is a major drinking water reservoir of the area, thus it was not allowed to be tapped.

25 Underground Thermal Energy Storage Cold sources and opportunities in the Mediterranean! The main cold source can be the ambient air in cold winter nights, as e.g. shown for a project in Egypt (Abbas et al., 1996; Abbas, 1998), in both alternatives! In certain locations, streams from the mountains bring cold water in winter and spring and can be used as cold sources. An ATES project based on water from Seyhan river was studied for the new extension of the academic hospital of Çukurova University in Adana, Turkey.

26 Conclusions! Studies have shown that UTES systems for cooling can be applied in the Mediterranean area! Within a collaborative project of the IEA, a study on the UTES potential in Turkey was prepared (Annex 8 of the Energy Conservation through Energy Storage Implementing Agreement)! From the experience in other areas, and from the Turkish potential study it can be concluded that the relevant geological conditions for UTES systems can be found frequently around the Mediterranean Sea, and also that for most underground situations a suitable UTES option (ATES, BTES, hybrid) can be adapted.
