Seasonal Storage of Solar Energy in Borehole Heat Exchangers

  title={Seasonal Storage of Solar Energy in Borehole Heat Exchangers},
  author={Simon Chapuis and Michel Bernier},
Seasonal storage of solar energy in geothermal boreholes has resurfaced as a means of heating housing communities. Typically, these systems operate at relatively high temperatures leading to high heat losses from the ground storage volume and to low solar collector efficiencies. In this paper, a new seasonal storage strategy is proposed. First, the storage temperature is kept relatively low in order to limit heat losses and improve solar collector efficiencies. Secondly, the seasonal borehole… CONTINUE READING
