Geothermal Heat Pump For Cooling And Heating Along European Coastal Areas

Objective

The principal objective of the project is the development of a commercial size, economic, energy efficient and environmentally friendly, fully integrated turnkey ground source heat pump system for cooling and heating, targeted specifically at coastal applications in the South European region. A total reduction of non-renewable energy use of 50 - 60% is aimed, by combining the significant reduction obtained by the use of a renewable geothermal energy source (40-50%) with the optimisation of a water-to-water heat pump unit using propane as refrigerant (additional 10%).

The main objective, 'environmentally safe and friendly', will be attained through the reduction in energy consumption and by the use of a natural fluid as refrigerant (propane) which has a negligible Global Warning Impact. The target is a design with low cost of purchase and installation, simple installation, low maintenance and high reliability, and requiring a reasonable small piece of land.
