Rijswijk Centre for Sustainable Geo-energy
Rijswijk Centre for Sustainable Geo-energy The Rijswijk Centre for Sustainable Geo-energy (RCSG) is a unique field lab where geothermal projects can be tested at full scale. Geothermal energy could play an important role in the energy transition; in 2050, geothermal energy could provide a quarter of the Netherlands’ heat demand. To accelerate this development, the
Description Area In our Description Area, we characterise the content and structure of sediments. This provides insight into the physical and seismic characteristics of the Dutch subsurface. Our descriptions are foundational to lithostratigraphy and the development of geological models. Origin and usability of the subsurface The sediments and their sequences offer information on the depositional
Geological field research
Geological field research Over the past 100 years, a lot of research has been done in the Netherlands on the structure of our subsurface. We deploy various techniques or a combination of them depending on the question to be answered. This includes drilling, probing, seismic research, and tTEM.
