About GeoFlow Australia

Geoflow Sustainable Energy SolutionsGeoflow provides design and complete installation for Geothermal and Solar thermal heating and cooling for residential and commercial applications. Our solutions are tailored to the needs of our clients and it includes:

 

Geothermal Heating & Cooling 

Geothermal heating and cooling best applies to residential buildings and commercial applications with balanced or simultaneous heating and cooling demand.  Geoflow has the highest qualifications for geothermal system design in Australia.  Dr Amir Kivi has a PhD in geothermal engineering from The University of Melbourne, and he is one of only two certified geothermal designers in Australia with more than 7 years’ experience on more than 40 geothermal projects.

Solar Thermal Systems for Space Heating & Cooling and Hot Water

Geoflow has partnered with Savosolar from Finland, who manufacture the most efficient solar thermal collectors in the World.  Solar thermal systems best apply to applications with high heating or cooling demand.  Geoflow focuses mainly on large-scale applications, such as heating greenhouses, poultry farms and dairy farms which have heating as one of their major costs.

 

Building Energy Modelling/Energy Assessment

For all projects, it is critical to first determine the hourly energy demand for the building/application.  Geoflow only suggests energy solutions that will provide the best real-world return on investment. 

For new buildings, GeoFlow uses specialist 3D building modelling software to calculate the hourly heating and cooling load.  For existing buildings, Geoflow uses the hourly meter data to assess the energy demand.  The data is then used in the design and feasibility assessment of a range of renewable energy solutions for the building. 

The hourly energy demand data is also used to provide compliance with the National Construction Code (NCC) and to deliver an ESD report. 

 

Feasibility Studies:  Geoflow assesses the real-world cost savings from implementing a range of potential renewable energy solutions, to ensure that the client makes the best decision for their energy-saving investment. 

 

Other Renewables like Solar Electricity and Battery Storage

Unlike other solar electric system installers, Geoflow will not recommend solar electricity unless it is proven to be the most cost-effective solution for the client.  Geoflow simultaneously looks at all renewable energy system types for each project, including combinations of solar electricity, battery storage, solar thermal and/or geothermal systems, using specialist 3D computer software.  Geoflow also analyses the dynamic interaction between demand and renewable energy systems on an hour by hour basis.

geoflow-Savosolar-large-scale-solar-thermal-heatinGeoflow is a design and installation company in Victoria with focus on sustainable energy supply. Our international team has extensive know-how and experience in solar thermal energy for large-scale heating, Geothermal heating/cooling, energy modelling and energy audit. Geoflow has partnered with Savosolar to bring leading solar thermal technology to Australia and help its customers to produce competitive solar thermal energy. Geoflow vision is to be the first-choice supplier to high-performance solar installations in Australia and New Zealand. The focus is on large-scale applications like heating green houses, poultry farms and dairy farms which have heating as one of the major costs. Geoflow primarily delivers complete systems from design to installation and commissioning at the lowest cost.

 

For building and energy modelling, Geoflow uses the most advanced modelling tool; TRNSYS. It allows Geoflow to model the building/greenhouse and solar thermal, geothermal or any system of interest in a single model and analyse the dynamic interaction between demand and renewable energy system for hour by hour analysis.

 

Savosolar headquarter and manufacturing facility is located in Finland and have subsidiaries in Denmark and Germany. With its highly efficient collectors and large-scale solar thermal systems, Savosolar has taken solar thermal technology to the next level. The company’s collectors are equipped with the patented leading nano-coated direct flow absorbers. Savosolar is known as the most innovative company in the business and aims to stay as such. The company has sold and delivered its products to 17 countries on four continents. Savosolar’s shares are listed on Nasdaq First North Sweden with the ticker SAVOS and on Nasdaq First North Finland with the ticker SAVOH. www.savosolar.com.

 

Geoflow has the highest skills in design and combining different sources of renewable energy including geothermal heating and cooling. Geoflow is the only company in Australia to have Certified Geothermal Designer and with the recent design of a 10,000m2 solar thermal collector system combined with geothermal heating in Australia, Geoflow is becoming the leading company in large-scale solar thermal solutions in the region. Australia has power prices as high as Denmark and annual average solar irradiation twice in Northern Europe. Combine this with an ambitious government renewable energy targets, Australia is the heaven for solar thermal systems. With recent Australia’s gas price hike, there is a huge potential for solar thermal systems to replace existing low-efficiency gas heaters in industrial and horticulture heating sector. Geoflow is now offering a turnkey solutions for large-scale solar thermal systems and with current energy market in Australia, there is a huge potential for rapid growth in delivering projects for different large-scale heating and cooling energy sectors.

Our People

GeoFlow Australia is committed to attracting, developing and retaining the right people who are highly competent, live the company’s values and actively contribute to our long-term success. Our workforce consists of people with diverse cultures, backgrounds and skills, and this diversity enriches our breadth of knowledge, capability and experience in sustainable heating and cooling design.

BSc, MSc, PhD, CGD, Energy Assessor

Dr. Amir Kivi, has a PhD from The University of Melbourne on sustainable geothermal energy systems and has developed new design tools for geothermal heating and cooling systems. Amir is a mechanical/building services engineers and since 2011he has been was involved in the design and installation of more than 35 high-efficiency renewable and conventional heating/cooling systems in Australia. He is one of only 2 certified geothermal designers in Australia who is accredited by the Association of Energy Engineers. He has also been accredited as a geothermal installer by IGSHPA, the peak international organization responsible for the standards and manuals for geothermal systems.

Dr. Kivi was also a 6-star building energy assessor by ABSA (Australian Building Sustainability Association) for NatHERS (Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme). Geoflow recently purchased the latest version of TRNSYS software and now Dr Kivi performs a 3D realistic building energy modelling and use the hourly data to model almost any type of renewable and conventional system (like solar thermal, geothermal, solar electricity and battery storage, etc.) for a typical year and compare efficiency, saving and payback from different options.

Dr Kivi is also listed as one of the trusted auditors in the Sustainability Victoria website and has performed detailed commercial-scale energy audits for several greenhouses and retirement villages.
