With the challenge of making new geo-exchange technology more affordable, we developed a machine learning tool to advance the field with speed and accuracy. … Continue readingHow Machine Learning is Evolving the Design of New Technology: The Story of GPPS
From an individual to a global developer/utility, we can provide more renewable cooling without generating more heat. … Continue readingHow to Cool Ourselves Through Global Warming (Without Making Things Worse)
The way soils react to the heat exchange of a geothermal or geo-exchange system is completely dependent on ground thermal properties. Knowing these values is essential to knowing long and short term performance of the system. … Continue readingHow do Ground Thermal Properties Change Geothermal Performance?
If the ground temperature around a geothermal system changes or is different in reality than what it was designed for, how much will be lost in performance and cost? Is a mere 1°C ground temperature change/error significant, or can it be ignored? … Continue readingWhat Impact Does 1°C of Ground Temperature Change Have on a Geothermal (Geo-exchange) System?
In this article, we show how the system capacity can be doubled, and annual energy costs could be saved by up to $131,400 simply by changing the fluid temperature difference by 1°C. … Continue readingWhat Effect Do Small Changes in Fluid Temperature Have On A Geothermal System?
Like solar and wind, geothermal is poised to become the next big source of development, growth, and innovation in the industry, but it faces one major problem: public understandability. … Continue readingWhat is Earth Conditioning? Creating Distinction in Geothermal Energy
