  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 24kW Ground Source Heat Pump In Essex - Case Study

    The space heating and hot water for this property was previously done by an oil boiler. The client was considering a ground source heat pump in order to lower running costs and benefit from tariff payments under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Better Planet carried out a room by room heat loss calculation. This is required in order to size the heat pump ...


  • 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 ...

    WCR Investments Limited (WCR) appointed ESI Ltd to undertake an options appraisal for the installation of a carbon efficient and cost effective heating/cooling system for some new commercial office spaces that are being developed at the Parklands Site, Bristol. The main objectives were to assess the technical and economic feasibility of a Ground Source Energy system, based on an understanding of ...

  • Heat Pumps – FAQs

    1. What is a Heat Pump? To put it simply; ground source heat pumps and geothermal heat pumps produce high grade heat from low grade heat which is found in the earth and our atmosphere.2. How does a Heat Pump Work?Heat pumps work in exactly the same way as air conditioners or refrigerators, but in reverse! Heat pumps capture latent energy which is stored in sources such as air, water and earth. ...

  • Energy and exergy analysis of Hybrid Ground-Coupled Heat Pumps with hot water supply

    The energy and exergy efficiencies of a Hybrid Ground-Coupled Heat Pump (HGCHP) system with Domestic Hot Water (DHW) supply are analysed based on experimental study. Comparisons between the HGCHP and conventional DHW systems, i.e., Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP), Electric Heater (ElcH) and Gas-Fired Boiler (GasB), are made with respect to the energy and exergy efficiencies. The results show that the ...

  • Geothermal Heat Pump (GHP) - Case Studies

    Case Study: “GHP schools used approximately 26% less source energy per square foot of floor area,” according to an evaluation of Lincoln, Nebraska schools by the Department of Energy. The report concludes that the schools using GHP technology “outperform others in the school district.” Case Study: Annual electrical consumption in Fort Polk ...

  • India’s Potential in Harnessing the Alternate Energy Sources

    Long queues for gasoline, high prices and shortage of gasoline are the signs which show that how natural resources are on the verge of depletion. This shows that it is high time for us to view how to utilize natural resources. India is mainly depended on import of petroleum products for its energy requirements. It meets its requirements by importing 70% of petroleum products. This is a point of ...
