Co-design of an implementation concept for a deep geothermal energy project at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

  1. 1. 01 Co-design of an implementation concept for a deep geothermal energy project at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) 8.10.2020 EGW 2020, Session „Social acceptability“ Melanie Mbah, Judith Krohn (Öko-Institut), Christine Rösch, Sophie Kuppler, Christina Benighaus (ITAS at KIT), Eva Schill, Katharina Schätzler, Florian Bauer (Cluster Geoenergy at KIT)
  2. 2. 01 Background of the project EGW 2020, co-design, Mbah et al. 2 01
  3. 3. 01 3 • German “Energiewende” needs more action towards reduction of CO2- emissions in heat use (heat production) (nearly 50% of CO2-emissions) • Geothermal energy plants may contribute to this transformation process • long-term infrastructure project • socio-technical implications, e.g. change of overall energy supply system, variety of actors and interests, landscape changes, … • social acceptability is an important aspect Background I 01 EGW 2020, co-design, Mbah et al.
  4. 4. 01 4 • Renewable energy plants are often contested infrastructures, despite a broad consensus for the German “Energiewende” • Stagnation in expansion of renewable energy plants (especially wind power plants and deep geothermal energy plants) • Many concerns/fears with regard to (deep) geothermal energy plants in many countries (especially regarding seismicity) • Public participation in geothermal projects has so far mainly remained at the level of hearings Background II 01 A participatory and transdisciplinary approach is promising to involve stakeholders at an early stage and take into account their knowledge, expectations, concerns and demands. EGW 2020, co-design, Mbah et al.
  5. 5. 01 GECKO – Co-Production of Knowledge and Co-Design 5 02 EGW 2020, co-design, Mbah et al.
  6. 6. 01 6 • In GECKO, recommendations for an implementation concept will be developed using the example of the KIT pilot plant • KIT aims at carbon neutrality • Site of the KIT Campus North, is characterized by one of the largest known heat anomalies in Germany (170°C at a depth of 3 km) • A pilot plant is planned for the use of deep geothermal energy GECKO Project 02 EGW 2020, co-design, Mbah et al.
