Geoflow/Savosolar Turnkey Solution
Turnkey solution for large-scale solar thermal space heating for businesses.
Geothermal Heating & Cooling
Turnkey solution for commercial and residential geothermal heating and cooling.
Energy Audit for Commercial
An energy assessment will identify the potential energy efficiency improvements for your business and find a sustainable alternative energy option.
Energy Modelling for Residential
We can thermally model your house in 3D and offer solutions to minimize your building heating and cooling demand load by implementing cost-effective passive house principles.
Our solar hot water flat plate collectors heat up water. Hot water is stored in large insulated tanks and used for domestic hot water, space and process heating.
Geoflow is the local partner with Savosolar and jointly provide solutions to Australia and New Zealand.
Savosolar is the manufacturer of the world’s most efficient collectors.
Collectors are made in Finland and carry on 10-year warranty for guaranteed performance.
For large gas users, we can reduce 50% of annual gas consumption.
A single solar thermal system saving $500K per year can be installed in less than 3 months.
The highest efficiency of our Savosolar collectors means the least land requirement for the solar thermal farming.
We can add an absorption chiller to our large solar thermal system to provide a free cooling solution.
With government support for the business energy assessment, we can assess your energy use profile and calculate the annual energy production with our solution and calculate Return On Investment (ROI). Contact us to discuss how our large-scale solar thermal heating can save for your business.
GeoFlow Australia recommends the use of Savosolar solar thermal collectors from Finland, as they can generate more than twice (205%) the amount of thermal energy compared with conventional flat plate solar thermal collectors (i.e. copper pipe and fin).
Higher efficiency means less collector and less land/roof space is required for a specific amount of annual energy.
In Australian climatic condition and for most applications with less than 60˚C hot water demand, evacuated tubes can deliver less heat in compared to flat plate collectors. Read more
If heating is your major energy cost, a solar electricity panel will be delivering 4.5 times less heat compared to the solar thermal collector. Some Dairy farms install a heat pump with solar PV to generate heat but note that it will cost more to install and will never reach Geoflow/Savosolar solution heat output.
Solar thermal for heating space can be stored in low-cost hot water storage tanks of different sizes, Solar electricity is stored in the battery which cost 10 folds and dies well before paying back for itself.
With the government support for a business energy assessment, we can assess your annual energy use profile and determine the feasibility of alternative solutions. The output of our feasibility study is payback period for different energy system scenarios to assist you to decide what system suits best for the future of your energy demand and your application. Contact us today to discuss how we can assist you.
Geothermal energy uses 1 unit of electricity to provide 3 to 5 unit of free energy (heat) from the ground.
Water is circulated in pipes buried in the ground (installed in horizontal trenches, vertically drilled boreholes or in irrigation water dams) to absorb free energy from the ground and water mass to heat and cool your home.
A geothermal system can also provide domestic hot water. During the cooling mode of operation of the geothermal system, domestic hot water will be a by-product and delivered absolutely for free.
Geoflow is proud to have the only Australian Certified Geothermal Designer (CGD) on-board.
For houses with high heating demand, Geoflow combines geothermal with solar thermal to maximize efficiency and minimise installation costs.
Geothermal is not an off the shelf product. Only if designed correctly, Geothermal can be 3-5 times more efficient than conventional heaters and air conditioners and up to 2 times more efficient than the best conventional solutions like VRF. Read More
Data from the existing energy system performance is collected and and compared it to benchmark data.
If required, extra electricity meters and temperature sensors are installed to fine-tune the most cost effective energy-saving solutions that are proposed for the business.
Waste energy minimization and energy recovery is always our first approach. Examples include installation insulation on heat transfer pipes where required, insatallation of flue gas heat recovery on boilers or heat recovery on the ventilation system.
Alternate fuel sourcing is assessed with emphasis on renewables like solar thermal heating and cooling and large tank storage, Geothermal and solar PV.
All energy-saving measures are proposed based on the payback period or Return On Investment (ROI) and co-benefits so the business owner can decide if it suits the business.
We identify a range of government subsidies that the business can apply.
New income sources like the federal government ERF payment for CO2 emissions reduction are identified.
Unlike 6-Star rating, our hour by hour 3D modelling with TRNSYS is realistic modelling and results can be used to:
Work in conjunction with the architects to apply passive solar design principles and minimize a house energy demand and future energy costs.
Accurately size heating/cooling system, ducting, hydronic, etc.
Design and assess the energy performance of renewables to allow making a decision based on annual and actual kWh’s and $ savings. Systems like Geothermal, Solar thermal, Solar PV and battery storage need to be assessed for every hour of a typical year to get estimated annual savings.
Our energy assessments are based on NCC Section 18.104.22.168; Verification using a Reference Building method. It replaces the 6-Star energy rating or deemed to satisfy method for energy compliance.
