Controlling the power of the ground by integration


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.

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).

Key Modules and Optimisation Approach for hybridGEOTABS Buildings: Background and state‑of‑the‑art Our consortium partners, Héctor Cano Esteban, Qian Wang, Jan Hoogmartens and Ongun Berk Kazanci introduce hybrid MPC GEOTABS and its key modules, and their optimisation in the REHVA Journal's February 2019 edition.   As the first article of a serial of project disseminations, this paper introduces the working principle of hybrid GEOTABS, as well as their main components/modules. The optimization approach of key modules in common practice is also discussed. This article aims at providing a basic knowledge of the concept as a preparation for the up-coming optimization development and integration of the involved key modules. Subjects wthin the article focus on: Hydronic radiant heating and cooling systems : TABS and its optimization approach Heat pump and secondary system module and its optimization Geothermal and renewable supply module optimization Read the full article here
