Abstract

The invention is a low enthalpy geothermal technology. The concept developed is an external application of ground heat exchanger circuits to the earth-contact area of buildings like earth-retaining structures and underground levels. The heat exchange modules shape can adapt to the available area and can be applied to new structures rather than to buildings being refurbished.

Abstract

The concept developed here is an improved tunnel precast segmental lining equipped to exchange heat with the ground in order to heat and cool adjacent buildings. A circuit of pipes is installed in each segment in the factory before precasting and a fluid circulates through them allowing for heat exchange with the ground.
