National GHP Retrofit Study

Abstract This report first briefly reviews geothermal heat pump (GHP) technology and the current status of the GHP industry in the United States. Then it assesses the potential national benefits in terms of energy savings, reduced summer peak electrical demand, consumer energy cost savings, and reduced carbon dioxide emissions from retrofitting the space-heating, space-cooling, and […]

GEO AHSRAE GHP vs VRF study

Definitive scientific research has shown that a geothermal heat pump (GHP) system offers far more efficiency in a large commercial building than a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system. In January 2013, the Geothermal Exchange Organization (GEO)—with financial assistance from Southern Company—contracted a research team from Oklahoma State University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory to evaluate […]
