Abstract

The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) has for many years been involved with research, advisory and consultancy services concerning the assessment of the geothermal energy potential in Denmark, in close cooperation with private and public partners. The Survey’s particular responsibility has been the development of geological models to describe and predict the distribution of sandstone reservoirs suitable for geothermal exploitation. Danish geothermal resources in known sandstone aquifers are estimated to be sufficient to cover household heating requirements in Denmark for more than a century (Sørensen et al. 1998).
