Summary and Info
The use of the heat stored in the shallow subsurface for space heating (ground source heat) is widely used in North America and many European nations, such as Sweden, and is regarded as the most important and reliable 'green' space heating technology. In many nations, including Britain, the technology remains poorly understood and under used. This situation is about to change, however, with the UK market for ground source heat pumps growing at over 100% per annum. This book offers practical guidance and will equip engineers, planners and geologists with the fundamental skills to assess and implement this new technology and to introduce them to the science behind thermogeology.
