Over the last few months, GEOTER has been working on selecting the most suitable way to monitor underground temperature and the communication and connection systems as part of WP4: Concept and Impact Validation. It will enable us to know, with time, the evolution of the geothermal resources, according to the demand of the buildings. In this context, GEOTER have developed the Enhanced Geothermal Response Test (EGRT) based on usage of a new equipment setup for the realisation of an on-site thermal conductivity test and continuous monitoring of the geothermal probes. It will provide us with geothermal field sizing optimisation and provide us the necessary data oriented to the MPC controller to decide the thermal management of the buildings.

Ongun Berk Kazanci and Nico Henrik Ziersen, from DTU, are travelling on an 8-day road trip around Europe... installing monitoring equipment into our DEMO Buildings. The installed sensors are in addition to the advanced BMS in these buildings and will allow us to study the indoor environment in details. These physical measurements will be supported with questionnaires.  The measurements will continue for about 2.5 years and will allow us to quantify the benefits of Model Predictive Control (to be implemented later) compared to Rule Based Control.

Our first Stakeholders Engagement Board (SEB) Meeting progressed well today. With Jelle and Eline (UGent), Wim (Boydens) and Lieve Helsen (KUL) presenting and introducing the H2020 Project to our SEB. Following the presentations, there was an active and productive open table discussion, about collaboration moving forward with the porject over the next few years. Thanks to those who attended and to REHVA for hosting our meeting and New Year Cocktails! #geothermal #heatingandcooling #thermalcomfort #cleanenergyEU #renewables #hybridgeotabs
