AbstractThe block course focuses on shallow groundwater wells and ground heat exchangers, but also expands the spectrum to include geothermal energy and geostorage potential in Switzerland. The contributions address, among other things, the question of how, with increased use of geothermal resources, conflicts of use due to the growing number of uses can be dealt with.
ObjectiveThe aim of the course is for participants to be able to describe the basic processes of geothermal use and to understand the regulatory framework. They will be able to assess the mutual influence of the uses and know possibilities to take these into account in strategic planning.
