Monitor the parameters over time at the ITER test site

Why monitor the parameters over time? Monitor the parameters over time through direct measurements and numerical simulation allows assessing the performance of horizontal collector systems. The ideas consists on using data collected on field to simulate the thermal interference between horizontal heat exchangers and subsoil. Accordingly, we want to evaluate the influence of TEBM on Read more about Monitor the parameters over time at the ITER test site[…]

ITER on the local newspaper: heat from the ground

Newspaper’s article about ITER Project ITER appeared on Erlangen local newspaper Erlangen Nachrichten on April 27, 2016. Due to the increased interest about using renewable energy for heating/cooling houses, there is a greater curiosity about what is shallow geothermal energy. It is not really clear how is possible to use the heat from the ground. Read more about ITER on the local newspaper: heat from the ground[…]

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?[…]
