Thermische Übernutzung des Untergrunds

Der Trend zur Installation von Erdwärmesonden (EWS) und Grundwasserwärmepumpen (GWWP) hält an. Dies ist aus energiepolitischer Sicht zwar erfreulich, erhöht aber die Gefahr der thermischen Übernutzung des Untergrunds. Nach der Präsentation der technischen und rechtlichen Konsequenzen der gegenseitigen Beeinflussung von Erdwärmenutzungsanlagen erläutern Vertreterinnen und Vertreter von Städten, Kantonen, Bundesverwaltung und Verbänden, wie sie die Problematik einschätzen und welche konkreten Massnahmen sie bereits ergriffen haben.

Rohe Stoffe – Fluch oder Segen?

Nichtenergetische, mineralische Rohstoffe wie beispielsweise Sand, Kies und Hartgesteine bilden eine wesentliche Grundlage unseres täglichen Lebens. Ihre Verfügbarkeit ist für uns selbstverständlich und der Verbrauch nimmt stetig zu. Was sind die langfristigen Folgen der zunehmenden Nutzung dieser nicht erneuerbaren Rohstoffe? Welche Herausforderungen kommen auf uns zu?

We Scientists Shape Science

We want science to be creative, solid, open, helpful for society and a good career opportunity for the talented youth. Let’s start to change what it means to be a scientist and the way and the framework in which science is conducted. It is us scientists who need to change science. Researchers and key players in the Swiss science landscape will decide upon first steps at the meeting. It is time for doing science better.
