Geothermal energy storage
TRT and faisability study UTES Ramsel
For a group of social housing, a ground loop field was designed. First the geothermical characteristics of the ground were measured by a TRT test. Based on this measurement, the UTES field was modeled numerically.
From the temperature course in the bodemlusmedium and the borehole wall in function of time, the design was well dimensioned. An oversized design indeed leads to depletion of the soil heat and freezing of the borehole wall.
