New paper on geothermal energy published

Our latest paper introduces a tabulated tool that aids in the early design of geothermal systems, by providing estimates of the system’s efficiency according to the chosen energy piles field configuration and heat pump sizing.

Sector coupling in urban districts – an opportunity towards decarbonisation

Sector coupling is a concept referring to the electrification of end-use sectors (e.g. heating and transport); it aims at increasing the share of renewable energy (solar, hydro, geothermal, wind, bioenergy, waste heat…) in these sectors.In practice, this is a strategy “to provide greater flexibility to the energy system so that decarbonisation can be achieved in… Read More Sector coupling in urban districts – an opportunity towards decarbonisation

Presentation at the Trondheim conference now available for download

A short and coincise presentation I gave in Trondheim (Norway) on 7.11.19, which summarizes the parametric study reported in the conference paper (see the link below). https://doi.org/10.1088/1755-1315/352/1/012011 Here is the presentation: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/337111301_Parametric_study_for_the_long_term_energetic_performance_of_geothermal_energy_piles
