The evolution of geothermal heating and cooling
Geothermal heating and cooling isn't a new technology. A focus on renewable energy and energy tax credits in recent years has created this impression even though the technology dates back 50+ years. For many nations, geothermal dominates the heating and cooling market. This presentation traces the history of geothermal heat pumps, discusses misconceptions, delves into market characteristics, and provides insights into energy savings and other benefits to the consumers and the economy.
