Abstract: The implementation of Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage (ATES) systems in the Netherlands is popular. However, in most cases not as successful as designed. A wide diversity of causes is responsible for the bad performance of these systems. In this research the possibilities of actively monitoring and managing the ATES is evaluated in a case study. First a modular simulation tool is developed using MATLAB and around 650.000 data points from the Building Energy management System to make more accurate predictions on the system behavior. When the simulation outcome matches the actual data, the tool can be used for optimizing.
