Campus geothermal well (DAPwell)

TU Delft, Hydreco Geomec, Energie Beheer Nederland (EBN) and Shell are preparing a geothermal project on the TU Delft campus. The goal is to facilitate geothermal research and its application and to use the heat from the earth for the heating of buildings. This geothermal resource will be installed near the TU Delft campus and this unique location will make that this well will become part of a large-scale research programme.


The ‘EASYGO: Efficiency and Safety in Geothermal Operations’ project is one of the Innovative Training Networks (ITN) within the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions funded by the EU. ITNs are meant for extraordinary global research as well as excellent training opportunities for PhD candidates to reach doctorate level.


The Geothermal Capacity Building Programme - Indonesia-Netherlands (GEOCAP) was an international collaboration between Indonesian and Dutch entities (2014-2018) with the goal to develop intimately linked geothermal programmes for education and training, research and subsurface databases at universities across Indonesia.


The general aim of Dimoprec is to accelerate energy efficient geothermal development. Through knowledge development, we minimize operational risks and prolong the lifespan of geothermal systems, reduce operational costs with environmental-societal risk minimization and improve subsurface integrity.

Tanzania Dutch Energy Capacity Building

‘TDECB’ is short for Tanzania Dutch Energy Capacity Building Project. This project aims to strengthen the capacity of post-secondary education and vocational training institutes. This way technical, international and domestic challenges related to renewable energy and the gas sector are easier to address.


DESTRESS is a Horizon 2020-supported project (2016-2021) and brings together an international consortium comprising 16 partner institutions from six countries in Europe as well as South Korea. DESTRESS demonstrates methods to create and operate enhanced geothermal systems (EGS).


The objective of the Circextin consortium is to create a strategic education partnership between universities and companies developing a comprehensive training platform. This platform will help to modify existing study programs related to extractive industry and incorporate a geo-circular economical approach to geo-energy, mining and storage activities.
