Geothermal energy is limitless, ubiquitous and free at the point of use. When combined with the very high energy efficiency of TABS and application range of hybrid systems, it offers huge potential to meet heating and cooling needs in Europe, and reduce CO2 emissions.

GEOTABS is an acronym for the combination of geothermal heat pumps with thermally activated building systems (TABS).  It is an innovative clean technology for energy efficient and healthy buildings which has several advantages; the radiant heating and cooling system has already proven to be one of the most comfortable ways to condition indoor spaces, especially multi-storey offices.

A decarbonisation of Europe’s energy system without a decarbonisation of the heating sector is impossible. Yet, efforts currently under way are too slow. Transforming the heating industry -from research and development to manufacturing, installation and maintenance- requires a gigantic effort by all stakeholders. Due to the distorted prices for energy, current market conditions are not suitable to trigger the necessary change.

The DecarbHeat initiative aims at bringing together the major players of the heating and cooling industry and other major stakeholders. Together they can make the vision of a 100% decarbonised European heating and cooling system a reality. The initiative consists of a the DecarbHeat Industry Pledge and the DecarbHeat Declaration of Support. Both will be formally open for signature at the #DecarbHeat 2017 Forum in Brussels on 11-12 May 2017.

The BINE Themeninfo II/2016 „Efficiently heating & cooling non-residential buildings” explains how to use environmental energy to cool or in combination with heat pumps to heat non-residential buildings by using thermo-active building systems. It discusses the low-exergy concept, reflects on the thermal indoor comfort, shows how to operate heat pumps efficiently and presents operation management and control strategies. The final chapter deals with the experience with 3 low-ex buildings over several years of operation. Read the whole Themeninfo at the link provided below

Earlier this year, in its Heating and Cooling Strategy, the European Commission addressed thermal energy for the first time in a consistent manner. This was timely, as decarbonising Europe’s energy system is impossible without decarbonising the heating and cooling sector.     The ‘Clean Energy Package’ that was published yesterday is a step in the right direction to enshrine the objectives of the Strategy in EU law.
