Geoinvestigate provide Geothermal desk studies or geothermal feasibility reports to establish the viability of ground source heat pump systems GSHP.
Our Desk study reports provide information on a range of geological factors which affect the suitability of the ground to provide geothermal energy. These include geology, mining activity, hydrogeology, groundwater flow patterns, groundwater levels, local water abstractions. Our reports cover the different types of GSHP closed loop, open loop and horizontal.
An estimate can be made of the grounds potential thermal energy harvesting properties which in combination with building energy consumption can provide a useful guide to the depth of no of geothermal Boreholes needed for a site specific project.
