This paper discusses how to implement the long-term sustainability of shallow geothermal energy systems, specifically by addressing thermal interference between neighboring borehole heat exchangers (BHEs).
Investing in green sustainable energy is key to tackling increasing global energy demands. The EU Horizon 2020 project GEO4CIVHIC faces this challenge head on with cutting edge heating and cooling technology. The project integrates geothermal energy in civil and historical buildings using shallow geothermal heating and cooling solutions.
The UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and Culture in Europe developed an infographic of the real demo site of Angel’s Gate in the UNESCO World Heritage site city of Ferrara ( Italy) to present the work achieved through the GEO4CIVHIC project. In the infographic are described and illustrated the technologies used through the project as well as the infrastructures put in place.
UNESCO published in its newsletter the article “Green energy of the future: Angel’s Gate in Ferrara“, together with an interview with Luc Pockele and Massimiliano Finotti about this real demo site developed in the GEO4CIVHIC Project.
CORDIS has published on its website, in six languages, the “Results in Brief” article elaborated by Dr. Adriana Bernardi, as part of the “Results Pack on Geothermal Energy – New Edition”.
UNIPD has finalized a video and an article (in Italian) devoted to the general public with the focus on geothermal energy, with the help of the media release office of the University.
