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 inContinue reading “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). Here is the presentation:  

Conference paper on geothermal energy now published

Here you can download the pdf (open access): I will give the talk next week at the 1st Nordic nZEB+ conference in Trondheim, Norway! Abstract: Geothermal energy constitutes an important renewable resource that will become increasingly prominent in future constructions. A common method of extraction and usage consists of installing, inside the foundation pilesContinue reading “Conference paper on geothermal energy now published”
