  • Zoo-technical application of Ground Source Heat Pumps: a pilot case study

    Ground Source Heat Pumps are energy-efficient HVAC systems usually adopted in residential and commercial buildings. However the control of the thermal environment is required not only in spaces occupied by people, but also in intensive breeding farms, in order to maintain healthy conditions and to increase productivity. In the Italian livestock breedings, heating is usually provided by means of ...

  • Exergetic and sustainability performance assessment of geothermal (ground source) ejector heat pumps

    Although ejectors have been used in cooling/refrigeration and Heat Pumps (HP) applications for a long time, utilisation of Geothermal Ejector Heat Pump (GEHP) with Ground–Heat Exchanger (GHE) is a new idea, which has recently appeared in the literature. In this study, we model a GEHP system with a GHE in terms of exergetic aspects and apply our model to this system in the heating mode. The system ...

  • Thermodynamic analysis and assessment of space heating with ground–source heat pump for sustainable future

    In this paper, the thermodynamic modelling of exergy loss, exergy efficiency, exergy destruction rate, environmental destruction coefficient, improvement potential, exergy destruction factor, relative irreversibility, productivity lack and exergetic factor of ground source heat pump (GSHP) system are investigated. The results show that these exergy indexes should be used integratively. Compressor ...

  • Permeable (pervious) pavements and geothermal heat pumps: addressing sustainable urban stormwater management and renewable energy

    Water and energy are the two most fundamental ingredients of modern civilisation and are also the most precious and essential resources around the globe. They are inseparably coupled and with increasing pressures on these resources as the world's populations grow, the concepts of a combined approach can be applied while addressing the economic, climate, water and energy crises. Sustainable ...

  • What’s geothermal again?

    Some green energy sources seem to have charisma; others struggle for public attention with little success. Solar energy is an “it” technology, as evidenced once again by the tremendous participation in the annual Solar Power International conference in Anaheim, California this week (Oct. 27-29). Twice as many companies (945) are displaying their wares in the Expo Hall this year, despite the still ...

  • Ground Source Heat Pumps

    In many buildings Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs) provide an efficient solution for heating and cooling. Using low temperature latent heat which exists naturally below ground, GSHPs provide solutions by harvesting and transferring this energy for the benefit of the built environment. It is important to understand the feasibility of GSHP prior to designing a system. This guidance note has been ...
