Project Description

A policy oriented project, building on Phase 1 funded in 2014 that focused on an analysis of the impact on ground thermal conditions of installing closed-loop geothermal heating and cooling systems-- with an Irish-specific model delivered. Phase 1 found differences within rock formation in Ireland, compared to EU and recommended a larger set of parameters for ground source heat collectors be developed. Phase 1 made an active contribution to GSI's heat collector suitability maps launched earlier this year. Phase 2 will tackle some of the shortcomings of these maps- namely additional detail in the subsurface specifically in urban areas. This will add to understanding of ground source collector performance and system efficiency while delivering a number of local suitability maps
