Controlling the power of the ground by integration

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Geothermal energy is limitless, ubiquitous and free at the point of use. When combined with the very high energy efficiency of TABS and application range of hybrid systems, it offers huge potential to meet heating and cooling needs in Europe, and reduce CO₂ emissions.

WHAT ARE GEOTABS AND MPC?

An innovative clean technology for energy efficient and healthy buildings is the combination of thermally activated building system (TABS), a ground heat exchanger and heat pump in between both systems (GEOTABS).

Our hybridGEOTABS August 2018 Newsletter is now available, and is dedicated to our partners' research and application of Model Predictive Control in the GEOTABShybrid project.   When combining GEOTABS with secondary heating & cooling systems in GEOTABShybrid, one of the key operational challenges is to decide at each point in time, again and again, which of the systems should be used. The GEOTABShybrid  solution therefore proposes the integration of both systems using an advanced type of control, Model Predictive Control (MPC).
