Energy Pile Ground Heat Exchanger

In an urban environment, the ground immediately below a city can be used as a low grade energy storage reservoir. Geotechnical structures such as piles, tunnels, sewers, retaining walls and ground slabs can be regarded as thermo-active structures by simply embedding GHE pipes in them. For example, if the building is a large commercial or industrial building with significant foundations including large diameter piles, then it is almost certain that these elements will provide the location for the GHE.
