Solar Powered District Heating at Owen Square
Solar Powered District Heating
Owen Square Community Energy Project
Interseasonal Heat Transfer is controlled by an Energy Centre Skid
which uses ASHPs
powered by PV electricity to transfer summer heat down to ThermalBanks
in the ground.
The ICAX Energy Centre Skid incorporates a heat pump
to recycle heat back to the building in winter without burning fossil fuels.
IHT doubles the Coefficient of Performance
of the heat pump by starting from a warm ThermalBank.
