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.
