Selecting and Applying Geothermal & Thermal Energy Networks

Selecting and Applying Geothermal & Thermal Energy Networks

On-Demand Webinar Recorded June 2023
Geothermal technologies and thermal energy networks, can be a cost-effective, environmentally conscious option to provide clean energy driven heating and cooling solutions for buildings and facilities. Geothermal technologies tap into the nearly limitless natural supply of thermal energy in the ground that is available year-round, regardless of weather conditions. And they can be used in both a private-sector and public-sector settings. Thermal Energy networks connect not only geothermal resources together, but can also incorporate independent sources of heat/energy recovery.
