Aardwarmte Delfland: working together on providing sustainable heat
Aardwarmte Delfland is a cooperation between Yeager Energy, Harting Holland, A. de Bruijn & Zn. and Shell Geothermal. Together we are working to develop, produce and supply renewable heat in the Westland area.
There is sufficient subsurface data available in this area to allow the production of geothermal heat in a safe and sustainable manner. We are now assessing if this heat can be produced in reliable and affordable manner.
Geothermal energy system connected to a district heating network
Feasibility phase. We know that geothermal heat production is possible and we are now studying the economic feasibility.
We expect to start delivering sustainable heat in 2025.
Greenhouse horticulture sector, companies, homes and utility buildings
De Lier 8 and De Lier VI
Which area does it concern?
The area is situated between The Hague and Rotterdam in the province of Zuid Holland, in the well-known ‘Westland’ horticulture area. The license areas concerned are ‘De Lier 8’ and ‘De Lier VI’.
The greenhouse horticulture sector plays an important role in this area. Greenhouses have a high demand for heat and have been the pioneers in geothermal energy. A significant number of geothermal systems have been realised in this area and have proven that the geological conditions are excellent in this area.
In addition to the production of geothermal energy, we are also investigating the supply of heat using district heat networks.
The areas ‘De Lier 8‘ and ‘De Lier VI‘ are located south of The Hague and northwest of Rotterdam (province of South Holland).
Current phase of the project
Yeager Energy participates in this project jointly with partners Harting Holland, A. de Bruijn & Zn. and Shell Geothermal. A joint operating agreement has been agreed and an SDE subsidy obtained.
We aim to expand the market for heat sales as much as possible to be able to provide the lowest possible heat sales price.
What are the benefits?
This project is of interest to anyone who wants clean, sustainable and affordable heat.
