DOE Webinar June 23: Geothermal Heat Pumps
June 21, 2011
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Program (TAP) for state and local officials will present a webinar on Thursday, June 23, about geothermal heat pumps, one of the fastest growing applications of renewable energy in the world today. In addition to describing different system configurations, including horizontal trenches and vertical holes, as well as open loops that use well or lake water, the presentations will outline steps for implementing policies to take advantage of geothermal energy and provide links to helpful resources.
To provide further context through a real-world example, there will be a section of the presentation outlining the successful integration of geothermal systems into large municipal buildings in Eagan, Minnesota. City administrators and contractors who implemented these geothermal systems will explain how they accomplished the work in approximately six months, without having to close the city buildings during installation or disrupt the routines of the people who use them.
This presentation will take place June 23, from 3:00 to 4:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
This webinar is free of charge, but you must sign up in advance to obtain a URL for the presentation and call-in phone number.
