Advances in Ground-Source Heat Pump Systems relates the latest information on source heat pumps (GSHPs), the types of heating and/or cooling systems that transfer heat from, or to, the ground, or, less commonly, a body of water. As one of the fastest growing renewable energy technologies, they are amongst the most energy efficient systems for space heating, cooling, and hot water production, with significant potential for a reduction in building carbon emissions. The book provides an authoritative overview of developments in closed loop GSHP systems, surface water, open loop systems, and related thermal energy storage systems, addressing the different technologies and component methods of analysis and optimization, among other subjects. Chapters on building integration and hybrid systems complete the volume. * Provides the geological aspects and building integration covered together in one convenient volume* Includes chapters on hybrid systems * Presents carefully selected chapters that cover areas in which there is significant ongoing research * Addresses geothermal heat pumps in both heating and cooling modes
Dr Simon Rees is Associate Professor in Building Physics in the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds, UK. He has been active in ground source heat pump research since joining Oklahoma State University (headquarters of the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association) in 1998 and has published more than fifty papers on GSHP and building energy simulation topics. His work focusses on modelling ground heat exchanger devices and whole system performance analysis. He participates in the European Geothermal Energy Council and EU Renewable Heating and Cooling Technology Panel concerned with shallow geothermal systems and is a regular speaker at UK Ground Source Heat Pump Association research seminars.
