Building Energy Efficiency and Geothermal Heat Pump Systems

Accounting for nearly 40% of all U.S. primary energy consumption, the building sector provides significant opportunities for energy efficiency applications. Within the building sector, the mechanical system (HVAC) is the largest source of energy consumption for both gas and electric. Significant reductions in energy consumption by HVAC systems can reduce peak loads, base loads and greenhouse gas emissions, providing a solution to demand response, rising utility prices and concerns over climate change.
