The DAP Project

The DAP foundation was initiated in 2008 by students and alumni at the department of Geoscience & Engineering and aims to provide the TU Delft with a sustainable heat source through the realization of a geothermal well on the campus, with the help of several partners from the energy industry. In 2009, DAP acquired an exploration license for the Delft area, in which 4 geothermal wells of 2500 m depth have by now been realized by pioneering greenhouse companies Ammerlaan and Duijvestijn.

Furthermore, DAP seeks to promote the general use of geothermal energy for heating and energy production in the Netherlands by generating and disseminating knowledge for research, education and development. DAP assists greenhouse enterprises in the area with the development of their geothermal initiatives and has an advisory role to municipalities and the provincial council with respect to geothermal energy.

This years edition

SURFACING VALUE Unveiling business opportunities for geothermal energy.
We are happy to announce this years edition of the DAP Symposium will take place on March 15, 2017.
The symposium will aim to unveil the market potential of geothermal energy to investors and to the energy industry and on the other hand the opportunities corporate involvement will offer for developers and energy providers. The main focus of the symposium is to make investors aware of the potential of geothermal energy and initiate a solid foundation on which geothermal energy can compete in today’s market.

History of the DAP Symposium

Every two years a geothermal symposium is organised by the students of Applied Earth Science. The latest developments of geothermal energy will be discussed by speakers from all over the world. The symposium is always visited by students, researchers and companies and is therefore a good opportunity for social networking.
