A great article by Doug Dougherty of the U.S. Geothermal Exchange Coalition talks about the benefits of geothermal heat pump technology.

While ThinkGeoEnergy clearly focuses on the geothermal power and the large scale direct use sector, there is this article that caught my attention.

It covers the Geothermal Heat Pump Industry and was written by Doug Dougherty the president and CEO of the Geothermal Exchange Organization.

The article examines, so the summary “benefits and misconceptions about geothermal heating and cooling, and its proven energy savings. Geothermal heating and cooling is a win-win-win. It’s a win for HVAC contractors because it allows you to provide your customers with state-of-the-art, environmentally friendly technology. It’s a win for their customers because it reduces their utility costs. And it’s a win for the environment.”

The article describes the challenges and possible solutions for the geothermal heat pump industry and describes a very promising value proposition of geothermal heat pumps for the U.S. and beyond.
