Lay Summary (Italienisch)

Lead
Nell'ambito del progetto SCCER e seguendo l’agenda Svizzera per uno sviluppo energetico sostenibile GENERATE ha lo scopo di sviluppare metodi innovativi per l’estrazione di risorse geotermiche. Il progetto include metodi numerici, osservazioni geologiche e tecniche geofisiche.
Lay summary

GENERATE si articola in quattro studi complementari che hanno lo scopo di caratterizzare il bacino Ginevrino e condurre ricerca sulle tecniche di stimolazione di reservoirs ecosostenibili.

 

In particolare, GENERATE si propone di rispondere alle seguenti domande:

  • È possibile costruire un modello di circolazione di fluidi a scala kilometrica per valuatre la il potenziale geotermico del bacino Ginevrino?
  • È possibile stimolare un sistema geotermico (cioè il grande bacino Ginevra) mediante energia sismica?
  • Qual è la natura dell'interazione tra il passaggio di onde sismiche e trasporto di fluidi?
  • E' possibile utilizzare metodi di sismica passiva come una tecnica affidabile e conveniente per l'esplorazione di un sistema geotermico?

Queste quattro domande saranno affrontate da quattro progetti complementari, che risolveranno problemi specifici per la programmazione energetica ecosostenibile sia a breve che a lungo termine.

Abstract

Within the framework of SCCER and in agreement with the Swiss plan for the sustainable development of renewable energies this project will generate innovative ideas for geothermal reservoir stimulation, provide a quantitative understanding of geothermal resources in the Great Geneva Basin and test cost-effective geophysical exploration methods for geothermal systems. GENERATE proposes an interdisciplinary work-package articulating around the hypothesis that incoming seismic energy with specific central frequencies may affect pore pressures in the reservoir unclogging pore throats and ultimately allowing a more effective fluid flow at depth. To achieve this goal GENERATE asks funding to support two PhD studentships, two PostDoc positions and instrumentation.GENERATE proposes to combine numerical simulations and geophysical methods with the ultimate goals of assessing the geothermal potential of the Great Geneva Basin and identifying target areas for drilling. GENERATE will focus on the Canton of Geneva and will use the natural laboratory of the Rio Sucio Fault System, Costa Rica, as a proxy to asses the effects of incoming seismic waves (i.e. seismic external forcing) on geothermal systems. The acquired knowledge will be fundamental for a better understanding and optimization of the Swiss study case.The Great Geneva Basin is characterized by a moderate heat flow but the advanced geophysical exploration conducted in the area represents an unprecedented geological and geophysical basis for the development of a geothermal assessment of the area. In this framework GENERATE will advance research and development by addressing four specific major questions:- Is it possible to build a large-scale fluid flow model of the Great Geneva Basin to quantitatively assess the geothermal potential of the area?- Is it possible to stimulate a geothermal system (i.e. the Great Geneva Basin) by means of seismic energy?- What is the nature of the interaction between passing seismic waves and induced heat and mass transport?- Is it possible to use passive seismic methods as a reliable and cost-effective technique for the exploration of a geothermal system?These questions will be addressed by four complementary projects, which will answer more specific problems for both the short- and long-term planning. GENERATE follows SCCER’s philosophy and has the potential to produce applied and fundamental findings while delivering novel research across various disciplines of earth sciences. Most notably, GENERATE will provide an important contribution for the development of geothermal energy in Switzerland.
