Geothermal Ground Loop Performance Monitoring
The project will entail the development of a flexible and robust data acquisition and monitoring system for the large scale long-term performance evaluation of residential ground source heat pump system. The literature review will guide different alternative ground loop heat exchanger options. The expected result will provide flexible and portable hardware/software equipment and survey protocol for large-scale monitoring and evaluation of ground source heat pump systems. This will provide the necessary information on when and how such systems can be deployed based on the energy, economic and environmental perspectives. This will lead to new business for Groundheat System International and at the same time will forest faster adoption of renewable energy in Ontario/Canada.
