### Abstract

Many countries and companies are developing geothermal systems as a sustainable, secure, and domestic energy source. However, in the Netherlands, with a low thermal gradient, there are no governmental incentives for such developments, making geothermal heat and electricity production at best marginally economic. Therefore smart solutions are needed as to economize geothermal systems, such as integration into existing infrastructure, exploitation of synergies with fossil-fuel based systems, and innovation on well-construction technology.
