Involved researchers

Bruno Kessler Foundation, in collaboration with Università degli Studi di Padova and Servizio Geologico Provinciale di Trento, organize the scientific congress to present the research results of the project GEOTERM: GEOSCAMBIO IN TERRITORIO ALPINO (methods of analysis and monitoring tools for the characterization of the subsurface and the design of geoexchange systems in the Alpine area)

GEOTERM project aims to assess the suitability and potential of the Trento Province to host widely facilities geoexchange heat pump for air conditioning and to provide, in cartographic form, the results of the work.

The new provincial geothermal maps, available in WebGIS mode, is a valuable planning tool, as well as for the responsible and sustainable development of this technology. Increasingly stringent regulations are driving the energy design of new buildings and those undergoing major renovation to the progressive increase in the integration of renewable sources. In Italy, according to Legislative Decree 28/2011, since 1 January 2017 the production of thermal energy plants must be designed and manufactured to ensure the compliance with the coverage of the building energy needs (domestic hot water, heating and cooling) using at least the 50% of the energy produced from renewable sources. The geothermal heat pumps represent a financially attractive option, and can be applied almost anywhere, enabling the transfer of heat to and from the underground with high energy efficiency and fully meet the heating needs.

Scientific poster on the congress themes could be sumbmitted by November 25, 2016. Each poster will be evaluated and selected for exposure during the event by the Scientific Committee.
