The EU-Project GEOCOND is organising a web-based course on “cement-based grouting in Shallow Geothermal Energy Systems” on Friday 22 January 2021. This course describes the cement-based grouting that is used as backfill of boreholes for heat exchange in shallow geothermal energy systems (SGES).
The course starts with an overview of SGES and the corresponding objectives in the GEOCOND project. It will be then continued by outlining the role of grout and the required properties. Following that, the grout development process, the final recipes and the associated testing and properties will be presented. Afterwards, a laboratory-scale test, which was a small-scale replication of a geothermal heat exchange borehole in a sand box conducted using the developed grouts, will be demonstrated. Subsequently, different aspects and the significance of proper grout mixing in practice will be discussed. Eventually, two large-scale field tests conducted in two different facilities in Valencia (Spain) and Borås (Sweden) will be summarized. The course will be finally summed up by concluding remarks and answers to the questions raised by the participants.

This international course is hosted on the e-learning platform of the GEOCOND project coordinator, Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), in collaboration with partners in Sweden and Germany. The course is given in English; participation is free of charge, and a certificate for attendance can be issued by UPV on request.
