The aquifer thermal energy storage (ATES) system can make use of the heat of summer and the cold of winter, despite in different seasons, which can help to reduce the usage of the fossil fuel effectively, as a result, the atmospheric pollution can be reduced. This article firstly summarized the fundamental principles and the classifications of the ATES, and it also deduced and established the ATES mathematical model, and then numerical difference arithmetic was used to program so as to gain the simulation results. On the basis of the above, the author looks forward to the prospective of the aquifer thermal energy, and also provides the references to the applications of the ATES and the studies of the underground water source heat pump.
