If international agreements to replace fossil fuels with renewables are taken seriously by politicians, a much broader use of environmental‐friendly energy sources will be needed for heating and cooling purposes in the future. This necessary decarbonisation can be supported by the use of heat pumps in combination with geothermal absorbers, which have particular advantages since a large part of the heat used is extracted from the environment surrounding the building. The advantage of building…

The application of geothermal energy has increased in the last couple of years in order to provide the heating or cooling demands of major projects. Open systems using groundwater directly can be
