EXTRAQT is 100% devoted to aquathermal energy as a heat pump technology. We develop thermal models to determine the potential of rivers, lakes and canals and convert them into operational installations.
Using our digital twins of water bodies, we are able to show how much thermal potential surface water contains. Using these models we map how much heat we can extract from rivers, lakes and canals while respecting nature's limits thereby generating sustainable heating solutions.
With our digital twins, we engage at two levels:
We map the potential of aquathermy for cities, municipalities and provinces in a masterplan. That way you know the exact potential of all water bodies in your region.
We also realize your aquathermal installation from start to finish. Our models calculate whether your water body can supply the required heat of the building. If that's the case, we create the technical design and build the installation.
50% of global energy consumption goes to heating and cooling buildings, with only 14% generated sustainably. Currently, one dominant renewable resource is overlooked even though half the world's population lives less than 3 km from it: surface water.
Aquathermal energy is our solution. A 65% emission reduction is possible by harvesting the thermal energy stored in rivers, canals, and lakes.
