The 5 year Ground-Med project demonstrates the use of the next generation of heat pumps in Mediterranean climates. During the project, 24 European organizations have supported the development of 8 demonstration sites located in Mediterranean EU member states (Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia, Romania, Greece) to produce a measured seasonal performance factor higher than 5.
The final conference will look at the project results and the future of geothermal heat pumps in general. The requirements of specific parts of integrated GSHP systems and of GSHPs in different areas will also be covered. Ground-Med is supported by the 7th Research Framework Programme of the European Commission.
