MIT ONLINE TALK: GEOTHERMAL ENERGY NETWORKS
About the talk
With all the air conditioning needed in the summertime, why would a wintertime freeze cause the electrical grid to “spike” out of control as we saw in Texas last winter? Most people know that air conditioning loads in the middle of August usually drive the greatest demand on the grid. However, electric heaters, often used to handle peak heating loads, can double, or triple the electrical demand peak in the wintertime. Find out how geothermal heat pumps flatten the electrical demand, and why your local utilities want to pay for your geothermal loop.
