GeoExchange Australia Presentations
As presented at Geoescience Australia in partnership with AIRAH on 27 June 2018
Geoscience Australia was one of the original geoexchange or GSHP systems in Australia. Now over 20 years old, the building recently hosted an information session on electrification of heating and cooling in the ACT. Speakers at the event included an ACT Government representative as well as this presentation on thermal potential and the role of renewable thermal energy in the removal of thermal gas from our buildings.
As presented at All Energy Conference in Melbourne on 5 October 2016
In the renewable energy sector, electrical (energy) potential determines the design of renewable power systems (ie solar, wind etc) at any given location. Similarly, thermal (energy) potential relates to the available thermal energy in a given location that can be utilised for heating / cooling a building or group of buildings.
This presentation explores how the concept of thermal potential can increase the efficiency of heating / cooling systems and thus enhance energy productivity in terms of increased value output per kW generated and per tonne of carbon emitted.

This 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.

Presentation showing the incredible energy savings potential of geoexchange / ground source heat pumps for heating and cooling commercial buildings. This presentation was delivered at the AIRAH Pre-loved Buildings Conference in Brisbane, Australia in October 2014.
Titled Small Council, Big Vision, Bigger Savings, it takes the audience on the journey of this project from initial concept through to completion. It discussed both the incredible energy and dollar savings while also addresses the importance of the project team and their importance in delivering what was a truly great project.
