ABSTRACT
Sustainable reservoir management gained reputation past decades, to confront headlong geothermal resources depletion consequent to increased call for sustainable development and implementation of renewables into energy mixes. Combination of reserve capacity ratio, volumetric reserves evaluation and one tank open lumped parameter model was applied to test a deep reservoir of the Bešeňová elevation response and capacity confronting variable balanced period reserves are distributed for and defining adequate sustainable operation period and intensity. At local conditions, 55,5 l.s-1 constant production for 100 years appears reasonable only (initial 9,6 MWt → 8,18 MWt at t = 100 years), however, there is still a question of compromise between nominal output and production longevity.
