ITER PROJECT

VERY SHALLOW GEOTHERMAL ENERGY

KEY CHALLENGES OF ITER PROJECT
Go to thermally enhanced backfilling material

thermally enhanced backfilling material

to enhance the heat transfer of the ground surrounding the pipes creating thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM) suitable for horizontal systems

Go to HORIZONTAL COLLECTOR SYSTEMS

HORIZONTAL COLLECTOR SYSTEMS

to assess the performance and the environmental impacts of new promising technological solutions as special forms of horizontal collectors systems with and without TEBM;

Go to monitoring and modeling

monitoring and modeling

to monitor the results over time through direct measurements and numerical simulation

About ITER

a glince on challenges related to very shallow geothermal energy
Improving Thermal Efficiency of hoRizontal ground heat exchangers

Since heating and cooling demands constitute almost 50% of the final energy demand in Europe, the development of geothermal energy systems and especially shallow geothermal solutions, reveals a huge potential in providing thermal energy for residential and tertiary buildings.

Overall aim of ITER Project is to ensure the sustainability of ground coupled heating-cooling systems and especially the horizontal ground heat exchangers systems.

In latin "ITER" means "travel" and this word represent the continuous personal and scientific progress related to research activity, focused, in this case, on very shallow geothermal energy topic.
