Join us along with AIRAH’s ACT division and event co-host Geoscience Australia to discover the potential of geothermal energy in relation to productivity and efficiency.

Our founder and Managing Director Yale Carden, M.AIRAH, will present at the event exploring how the concept of thermal potential can increase the efficiency of heating/cooling systems, and thus enhance energy productivity when coupled with renewable energy systems.

Most current heating/cooling systems use the thermal potential within the ambient air (e.g. cooling towers) or within fossil fuels (e.g. natural gas for heating). Yale’s presentation will introduce a broader approach to the design of heating/cooling systems that also considers the thermal potential within the ground, water bodies, infrastructure (subways, water, sewer and building foundations) and adjacent buildings.

The evening will include a site tour of the Geoscience Australia facility.Also at the event, Dr Michael Smith, Senior Energy Efficiency Policy and Programs Officer for the ACT government, will share the ACT’s journey towards net zero carbon emissions. This will include the challenges and opportunities of upgrading HVAC systems (residential and commercial).
