Alae Eddine Barkaoui in 2014 started his two year long project called The Integration of geological mapping, geothermal potential and innovative geothermal energy storage into advanced planning of energy systems with a high share of renewable energy sources
(INTEGEORES) at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture at the University of Zagreb
, under the menthorship of Professor Neven Duić
. The project was successfully completed this year.
The premise of his research is that becouse of the objective reasons exist national and global energy policies that are primarily focused on the exploitation of renewable energy sources. Consequently, at the center of his research he put the geothermal energy with the aim of approaching the solution for using geothermal sources for seasonal and daily storage of energy. Also, according to Barkaoui, Croatia has a geothermal potential, which could be a significant source of renewable energy which would have significantly contributed to the overall energy efficiency and environmentally acceptable energy policy.
During the implementation of his project, he wrote the following scientific papers:
Barkaoui, Alae-Eddine, et al., "Appropriate integration of geothermal energy sources by Pinch approach: a Case study of the Philippines." Applied Energy (2016).
Barkaoui, Alae-Eddine, et al., "Mathematical Model of Geothermal Energy Resource Assessment in the Zagreb area." Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews (under submission).
Barkaoui, Alae-Eddine, et al., "Integration of geothermal energy into District Heating Systems in Zagreb, Croatia." Journal of Materials and Environmental Science (under submission).
Barkaoui, Alae-Eddine, et al. "Comparative GIS models for the assessment of the geothermal potential in Northeastern Morocco." Journal of Materials and Environmental Science (under submission).
Also, he attended the following workshops:
Centralized heating system in Velika Gorica. Velika Gorica, Croatia, 17/12/2014.
Energy Policy and Integration of Renewable energy sources for a sustainablre development of energy, water and environment systems. Oujda, Morocco, 21/10/2015.
The use of GAMS software in Total sites, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, Zagreb, Croatia, 2/3/2015.
After the implementation of the project, the Alae Eddine Barkaoui is focused on the dissemination of project results, to the improvement of the methodology of work, and the collection of data from other source.
