Announcing that GeoExchange Australia will be presenting at the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition – June 3-4, 2015.
We have teamed up Tumut Shire Council to present a project case study on the Riverina Highlands Building, in Tumut NSW. The Riverina Highlands Building Energy Efficiency Project (RHBEEP) is an award winning project which involved the retrofitting of the geoexchange system.
At the conference, we will be presenting on the ability of the geoexchange system’s Ground Heat Exchanger to utilise the ground for thermal energy storage. With specific reference to the RHBEEP project, we aim to show the scope of what cost savings and energy efficiency is possible using geoexchange.
What is the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition?
Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition is Australia’s dedicated energy storage event, and will take place on June 3 and 4 2015 at the Australian Technology Park, Sydney.
The exhibition will focus on energy storage industry at all levels – for utilities, energy businesses, building management and the emerging electric vehicle markets.
The conference, which will feature more than forty experts from Australia and around the world and will address how energy storage is shaping our world, at the grid and off-grid levels, for transport infrastructure and in residential and commercial buildings.
Energy supply matters – so does having the right technology
If you are a company that uses large amounts of energy in production, the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition will help you gain valuable information on optimum efficiency and cost effectiveness for your building.
We at GeoExchange Australia wish to share with you the success of the RHBEEP in the hope that it provides you with information of how geoexchange can help you.

Update (5 June):
Please see below for a copy of Yale’s presentation at the Australian Energy Storage Conference and Exhibition.
In summary, the presentation provides an overview of how the ground is being utilised for its thermal energy storage capabilities around the world, with focus on a local installation at the Tumut Council owned Riverina Highlands Building, located in Tumut NSW.
The installation has provided Council with energy savings on heating and cooling of 80 %, reduced peak energy loads by 40%, reduced maintenance costs and, importantly, provided significantly higher levels of occupant comfort. This has also increased the capacity and effectiveness of the concurrently installed solar PV array and will ensure that future solar energy storage will have greater impact.
