Brief introduction to what groundwater open loop Ground Heat Exchangers are;
Project process for selecting open loop GHX;
Overview of the design process for open loop GHX (including borehole design and thermal modelling)
Two case studies:
a. A small hotel where closed loop wasn’t economically feasible due to artesian conditions in the aquifer making drilling too expensive; and
b. A larger hospital where all they could do was open loop due to the very large loads from the building.
