has the oldest geothermal installation in Poland, operating since 1993. In this laboratory, on a large scale, scientific research is carried out on the acquisition and management of geothermal energy and on environmentally friendly technological solutions in this field. Research issues include energy-saving construction in the field of installation systems and devices for the production of electricity and heat, optimization of heat pump technology, as well as technologies for the recovery of the low temperature heat, not used for heating houses and apartments. It is worth emphasizing that the employees of our Institute are precursors of the use of geothermal energy for heating. In this laboratory, pilot installations for cascade heat system and a geothermal water desalination test station were built. Specialist software TOUGH, TOUGHREACT, PetraSim are used in the research, enabling modeling of geothermal deposit, HDR systems and binary systems.
