Stijn Beernink is a researcher on the Geohydrology team. He works on different geohydrological questions, with a special interest in thermal energy systems. In 2018, Stijn graduated from Wageningen University with an Earth & Environment MSc. While at university he gained the required experience in (geo)hydrological processes, GIS systems and various programming languages. During his traineeship at KWR, Stijn developed knowledge and experience with thermal energy systems through research into the efficiency of ATES systems in the Province of Utrecht. In his work Stijn draws on this combined experience principally to explore sustainable concepts for thermal energy systems and other forms of thermal energy systems from water.
