About Energy Foundations Seminar

This NEW seminar will set out good practice guidelines for designing and installing a ground sourced heat pump solution that uses geothermal loops installed within energy foundations and structures. It will discuss the importance and benefits of long term management and operation of such a system to ensure that the system delivers the designed heating and/or cooling loads and can be optimized to enhance returns on investment to make a project more attractive.
Some highlights are: 
  • use of Ground Source Heat Pump Association (GSHP) document for design,
  • energy foundations applications
  • bridge deck deicing opportunities
  • research results
  • GSHP mechanical systems
  • good working practice
