Decisions about the type of mechanical system are often made early in the design process...when only the area, use and location of a building is known. Using a database of energy models at www.geofease.com, GEOptimize can select a representative building type in the nearest location, select a conventional energy source, building energy efficiency measures and design a GHX based on the representative building. Estimating construction costs, utility rates, incentives and the carbon intensity of electricity for the project produces a complete feasibility assessment for a typical building. Is a Ground Source Heat Pump System Feasible for my Project?
Energy sharing systems
Different types of buildings have different heating and cooling load profiles. An office building requires cooling during the day when it is heavily occupied, while the condo tower across the street sits mostly empty till people head home for the evening.
Connecting different types of buildings to a common GHX allows the system to move heat from a building that has to get rid of heat to another that can use it.
GEOptimize has invested in modeling software to optimize the performance of interconnected systems to:
