Renewable heating and cooling technologies are replacing fossil-fuel based solutions on the market, but technical know-how, public acceptance and awareness about economics are still sub-optimal among the European population.
GEOFIT tackles this issue by developing an online tool enabling users to evaluate the most suitable option for a given case study. It is meant mainly for non-technical users from the residential and tertiary sector, building energy mangers, project developers and technicians of local authorities. This user friendly tool is a summary of GEOFIT’s four-year research on shallow geothermal systems. The focus is on geothermal heat exchangers.
