KTHs Ground Source Heat Pump Team
Welcome and enjoy your visit!
Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) are a common technology to provide heating and cooling for both commercial and residential buildings. The ground is attractive as a sink or source of heat because of its relatively stable and constant temperature. The heat is exchanged by circulating a secondary fluid (or groundwater) throught a closed (or opened) loop in the ground. Heat or cold extracted from the ground is delivered (often through a heat pump) to the building. Our research is focused on finding answers to improve the current design methods and to characterize the thermal processes inside borehole heat exchangers (BHEs) and in the surrounding ground. We are a relatively young group and we have great motivation to promote this technology!
