The CRYSTAL research project provides a picture above the ground of how energy storage is developing below the surface. Previous research has already shown that glass fibre can be used to monitor and improve subsurface energy systems. This new study continues the development of the monitoring system and is also developing software (a dashboard) that makes data from the monitoring system clear to read. The dashboard can be linked to building management systems in order to optimise ATES. The information can be used by municipal and provincial authorities, as well as private bodies, to implement coordination and make new agreements. Ultimately, these are the bodies who determine the extent to which agreements are made to collaborate at the area level.
