  • Northern Limburg municipalities choose geothermal energy 19.05.2017

    18 May 2017 - Today, the Northern Limburg mayors (1) and representatives of VITO, INFRAX, NUHMA, EnergyVille and POM Limburg gathered at the House of the City in Lommel, Belgium to launch a task force that maps the potential of geothermal energy and its exploitation for the region. Research shows that the potential for deep geothermal energy (2) is certainly present. There are aquifers (or water-bearing layers) in the region that can be used for heating purposes. The temperature in the deepest water-bearing layer appears to rise to more than 150°C, which is enough to be able to produce electricity in addition to heat.
