Tag: geothermal heat pump

A geothermal heat pump or ground source heat pump (GSHP) is a central heating and/or cooling system that transfers heat to or from the ground.
It uses the earth as a heat source (in the winter) or a heat sink (in the summer). This design takes advantage of the moderate temperatures in the ground to boost efficiency and reduce the operational costs of heating and cooling systems, and may be combined with solar heating to form a geosolar system with even greater efficiency. Ground source heat pumps are also known as “geothermal heat pumps” although, strictly, the heat does not come primarily from the centre of the Earth, but from the Sun.

If owners of commercial office buildings can incorporate variable-frequency drives (VFDs) into their HVAC systems, more often than not they probably should, says Pete Miceli, vice president, regional engineering manager for real estate service, development, and investment management at Transwestern’s Midwest office. Recently, Transwestern installed VFDs for supply and return

New Frontiers in Energy Management

“Utilities continue to find it extremely challenging to fund and manage capital projects while keeping rates low and stable. They’re embarking on asset management programs while finding ways to reduce operating costs and increase revenues through energy-related projects. . . . These programs are increasingly delivered through public private partnerships
