Determining the potential of aquathermal energy requires a dynamic analysis of the interaction between the water and its environment. Our digital twins convert this complexity for you into a clear result. So you immediately know if your waterbody is ready for an aquathermal installation!
Our digital twins have different layers of detail, ranging from 1D to 3D analyses. With 1D digital twins we provide a thermal potential quickly and efficiently, they are available for lakes or stagnant canals. With 3D analyses, we model very accurately the behavior of a thermal discharge plume in rivers, canals, or lakes. Ideal for analyzing aquathermal impacts for water-related permits.

Our digital twin shows the aquathermal impact on the water as a result of your heat demand. The reference temperature (without impact) is plotted relative to the temperature that would result from a future aquathermal installation.
In deeper lakes or canals, stratification may occur. Our digital twin gives a clear overview of this distribution in temperature throughout the depth of the water body. This allows an installation to be optimally designed using passive cooling.
The surrounding conditions of the surface water provide natural regeneration of the water temperature after impact. The thermal interactions between the water and the sun, air, and ground are simulated on an hourly basis.
Want to run multiple cases or compare different scenarios per project? License our 1D digital twin and start running your own simulations.
We offer individual guidance to use our model, so you can correctly implement all inputs and interpret the results of your project.
Benefits of consultancy
We use our 1D digital twin tailored to your need
Our 3D-models analyze local impacts of aquathermal energy in the waterbody and therby guarantee an optimal performance
We process all the results tailored to your needs and enable you to submit a permit.
To accurately map local aquathermal effects in rivers, 3D simulations are deployed. The thermal gradient of the cold plume is simulated to determine the downstream and upstream influences of an aquathermal project.
3D simulations in lakes are used to verify local thermal impact accumulation. It allows to determine the appropriate position of heat exchangers or cold discharges in a closed volume of water.
