Ground-Source Heat Pump Systems
Ground-source heat pump (GSHP) systems are an energy efficient technology for heating and cooling of non-residential buildings. Ground source is a relatively high and stable heat source temperature that enables a considerable share of the cooling demand to be covered by means of so-called “free cooling”. Installation of high quality GSHP systems therefore complies with the main goals of the new EU Directive on The Energy Performance of Buildings (Directive 2002/91/EC), i.e. reduction of the total primary energy demand and the associated CO2 emissions in buildings.
What about a wind turbine installed in your wall?
Researchers have been looking into the opportunities and possible drawbacks of exploiting small, so-called 'building-augmented' wind turbines (BAWT) in Norway.
