High-temperature heat storage in the deep underground
DeepStor-Konzept KIT

DeepStor is a scientific infrastructure investigating the HT-ATES (High Temperature Aquifer Thermal  Energy Storage) concept targeting former hydrocarbon reservoirs in deep sedimentary rocks. DeepStor is a scientific infrastructure project and takes a new approach.

DeepStor is in the construction phase and located at the KIT Campus North, about 10 km north of the city of Karlsruhe. This area has one of the highest measured geothermal anomalies in Germany with temperatures of up to 140°C at a depth of 2 km and is therefore especially suitable for geothermal exploitation and storage. 

The project was developed together with Prof. Eva Schill from the Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal at KIT and is embedded in the research of the Helmholtz Association in the program "Materials and Technologies for the Energy Transition" and the Helmholtz Climate Initiative.
