Borehole Heat Exchanger City of Ghent

The purpose of this study is to determine the  potential of Borehole Heat Exchangers  (BHE) for the territory of the city of Ghent.  The results of this study will be used to support the energy policy of the city of Ghent.  The potential was determined by 1) analysis of the available space for boreholes and 2) calculation of the potential heat extraction per borehole.  The study was carried out in cooperation with GIM, a bureau specialized in GIS applications.

The result of the study was a series of maps showing the BHE potential and the possible reduction of CO2 if BHE would be implemented.
