Presented at: Geothermal Workshop GEOELEC, Utrecht, Netherlands, 24/01/2012.

By request of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation (EL&I), ECN and KEMA conducted an analysis of the costs of geothermal heat and electricity or cogeneration for the SDE. Based on analysis and a stakeholder meeting, base rates were proposed for geothermal heat, combined heat and power (CHP), and geothermal electricity generation. New geothermal heating projects for horticulture and district heating may apply for the SDE+ for a base rate of €10.9/GJ, based on 7,000 full-load hours. Geothermal CHP projects may also apply for the SDE+ for a base rate for heat and power of €18.9/GJ, based on 8,000 full-load hours electricity and 4,000 hours heat.
