‘Dutch homes get warm water from disused coal mine’
Green energy from coal mines is something unpredictable. But yes, the coal mines which were once considered as air polluter are now a source of green energy. Dutch homes are getting warm water from these disused coal mines. The coal mines that have been disused for more than thirty years, has been revived as a source of green energy.
The originators claim it to be the world’s first such energy generator. The Mine Water Project went into action in the last month, heating about three hundred and fifty homes. The eco-factor in the project is that it emits 55 percent less polluter carbon dioxide than other water heating systems. Mine water is the best example for the storage of energy at the local levels.
A report says;
The water temperature measures 32 degrees C (89 degrees F) at the bottom (of the well) and 28 degrees when it arrives at the surface. The extracted heat is used to warm household water supplies before being pumped back to a depth of 450 meters to reheat and be used again.
