21.06.2012 - Over the past five years, ETH Zurich has been developing a dynamic underground storage system at ETH Hönggerberg with the aim to make the campus as CO2-free as possible until 2025. Until today, 230 of the around 800 downhole heat exchangers ((bitte nochmal überprüfen lassen)) have been installed and two underground stations have been constructed to control the temperature of individual building complexes.
