Shallow geothermal systems: how to exchange heat with the ground?

Shallow geothermal systems Several technological solutions called Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs) are available for shallow geothermal systems. What do they do? Most of all, they transfer heat between underground and residential, industrial or commercial buildings. Since GSHPs are conceived to extract and/or inject heat from/into the ground during winter and/or summer, several technological solutions Read more about Shallow geothermal systems: how to exchange heat with the ground?[…]

European Projects: ITER meets Cheap-GSHPs in Bilbao

European Projects in contact A wonderful opportunity of cooperation at dissemination level between two European Projects The Project Coordinator of Cheap-GSHPs Project, Dr. Adriana Bernardi, invited ITER to attend their 2nd Internal Meeting. In detail Cheap-GSHP means “Cheap and efficient application of reliable ground source heat exchangers and pumps”. Why? Because this project focuses on Read more about European Projects: ITER meets Cheap-GSHPs in Bilbao[…]

ITER test site in Eltersdorf: horizontal collectors and soils

ITER test site The ITER test site for horizontal collector systems was realized in Eltersdorf, near Erlangen, Northern Bavaria (Germany), during November 2015. Thanks to the common efforts of ITER partners (the Friedrich Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg-FAU, the REHAU AG & Co company, the Fischer Spezialbaustoffe GmbH) the ITER test site is ready! REHAU provided Read more about ITER test site in Eltersdorf: horizontal collectors and soils[…]
