Mission

The Dutch Association of Geothermal Operators (DAGO) promotes the collective interests of members in the Netherlands and contributes to the safety and effectivity of extracting geothermal energy.

Vision

The members of DAGO share their experiences and knowledge of geothermal in an open and equal manner, especially to new projects. Through pooling and sharing of these experiences, DAGO improves and accelerates the opportunities in creating a standardization policy, a higher efficiency and the accessibility of information within the geothermal industry.

Key competences: 

Co-operation, integrity, information and problem analyses, monitoring and control

Strategy:  

By working co-operatively together with policymakers, DAGO aims to prevent risk in an adequate and professional way, in close combination with maximization of output, maintenance friendly and a high sustainability.

By doing as follows:

  • Consultation of policy makers, supervisiors and other key stakeholders
  • Set up and maintain industrial standards and best practices, using practical know how
  • Combining, reporting and communication of practical experiences
  • General reporting of key learning issues
  • Use of practical know how in research programs and agenda’s
  • Knowledge transfer and presentations
  • Co-operation with Stichting Platform Geothermie, LTO Glaskracht Nederland and the public-privately initiative Kas als Energiebron

The group of operators is yet relatively small for the ambitions of the young association and a sustainable growth of the number of projects is one of the targets. This is one of the reasons why the program Kas als Energiebron admitted a contribution for the project “kennismedewerker” (knowledge manager) for DAGO. Geothermal is an important option to lower the use of fossil energy in the Dutch greenhouse industry.
