AGT is specialized in studies on groundwater-related techniques. In the context of civil and hydraulic engineering projects, AGT is an independent office that provides objective and substantiated advice on complex and less complex groundwater problems. AGT also supports you during the entire environmental authorisation procedure.
Underground energy storage
In Underground Thermal Energy Storage (UTES) the subsurface is used as storage medium for heat and cold. During winter, summer heat is used to heat the building and in summer, winter cold is used for cooling. In this way energy is used both economically and ecologically. The two most common techniques are ATES (Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage) and BTES (Borehole Thermal Energy Storage).
Sustainable water management, climate adaptation and ecohydrological studies are complex and area-specific issues. AGT has the experience to investigate and monitor groundwater processes with the help of field measurements and numerical groundwater modelling.
