Aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES)


Technology Description

An open-loop geothermal network uses an aquifer to store cold or heat on a seasonal basis.

Relevance for Net Zero

Seasonal storage is key to offset peak demand, which is generally driven by a building's thermal needs (either during the winter or summer). However, large scale systems need to be implemented at the community level (zero-emissions districts, campuses, etc).
