Geothermal and Thermal Energy Storage Systems: Opportunities to Decarbonize

Wednesday, October 25th

October 25, 2023

Wednesday, October 25th

Geothermal, or ground source solutions have gained renewed interest. Continued improvements in well drilling and heat exchange technology has led to improved performance and lower installed costs. While thermal energy storage has been around for over 40 years, innovations in heating with ice has expanded the operating map and carbon reduction potential. The increase in incentives in the form of fuel switching, carbon caps, carbon pricing and investment tax credits can make these systems even more attractive.

This webinar will explore advantages and disadvantages for commercial building geothermal and thermal energy storage solutions. Presenters will discuss key application considerations for distributed and centralized geothermal systems including a review of equipment. Thermal energy storage economics, cooling and heating system applications will also be discussed. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the changing decarbonization landscape 
  • Understand advantages and disadvantages of ground and storage source systems
  • Identify key considerations for geothermal and thermal energy storage systems 
  • Compare distributed and centralized geothermal solutions

Duration: 60 minutes
