Geothermal source on TU Delft campus a step closer

Geothermal source on TU Delft campus a step closer

De urgentie van de energietransitie neemt elke dag verder toe. De CO2-uitstoot moet in 2030 met 55% verminderd zijn ten opzichte van 1990 en 1,5 miljoen huishoudens moeten dan aardgasvrij zijn. Dat vraagt om concrete actie. Zo’n tien jaar geleden kreeg een groep TU Delft studenten het idee om een geothermische bron op de universiteitscampus te boren. Wat eerst een wild plan leek, werd in gang gezet toen bleek dat de campus een ideale plek voor geothermie was.

Climate change also measured by the sound of glaciers

Climate change also measured by the sound of glaciers

In winter, glaciers are silent. But in the summer, it turns out that they generate infrasound through calving ice and meltwater. This is an inaudible sound to humans, but is picked up by high resolution measuring instruments.

Can TU Delft still work with the oil industry?

Can TU Delft still work with the oil industry?

Delft's climate mission no longer makes working with the oil industry a given. Prof. Dr. Giovanni Bertotti (Geoscience and Engineering (GSE)) works at the department with the most collaborations in the oil and gas industry. The shift from fossil to renewable energy is taking place slowly but irreversibly. What does that mean for collaborations?
