Ground Source Heat Pump Association


Ground Source Technical Seminar
Thursday 24 May 2018
University of Leeds

The GSHPA's Technical Seminar on 24 May was a fascinating confluence of current thinking in the world of geothermal engineering and sustainable use of thermal energy storage in the ground. The seminar was kindly hosted by the School of Civil Engineering University of Leeds.

The seminar primarily addressed live technical issues surrounding closed and open loop systems, both ground based and surface water source based.
