Speciality field: The Department of Industrial Engineering (DIN) of the University of Bologna participated in the KIC funded project "Europe-wide Use of Sustainable Energy from aquifers’ – E-USE(aq). The project foresaw the realization of an ATES pilot in Italy, that is now running (commissionig completed in June 2019). DIN developed some specific skills in ATES system design (especially in high groundwater velocity framework), a preliminary test for aquifer characterization, integration of ATES systems in district heating and cooling, system monitoring.
