Committed to renewable energy.
Geothermal energy refers to the heat stored in the earth’s crust, which can be exploited by using engineering methods. Due to the rise in global energy consumption and the limited reserves of fossil fuels, the demand for renewable energy sources is constantly growing.
Geothermal energy is regarded as a promising energy source that can be used in the long term, e.g. for heating buildings or generating electricity. Direct use refers to transferring the heat from the earth straight to the consumers by means of heat pumps. The use of geothermal heat after it has been converted into energy by means of cogeneration is known as indirect use.
PORR Umwelttechnik’s specialists have been focusing on renewable energy and on geothermal systems as an alternative energy source for heating or cooling buildings for many years. For example, they were involved in the construction of the Austria Campus – which at the time was the largest geothermal energy project in Austria. In addition to the construction of geothermal plants, PORR Umwelttechnik also offers consulting, design and planning services in the field of geothermal energy – from the submitted project to the detailed design.
