How does geothermal energy storage work?
Geothermal energy storage is a form of energy storage using natural underground heat to generate and store energy. These systems can either transfer heat energy from underground water to electricity or store the extra energy in underground water.
Geothermal energy storage systems consist of two separate groundwater wells–one for cold water and one for warm water. Both are connected to an aquifer. The system operates differently in the summer and winter; in the summer, cold groundwater from the cold aquifer is used to cool the building. As heat transfers from the building to the water, the warmed-up water will be taken to the well that stores warm water. In the winter, the warm water is used to warm up the building, and as the warm water transfers the heat to the building, it cools down and is taken to the cold water well.
Benefits of geothermal energy storage
Installing geothermal wells comes with several advantages. The first is that geothermal systems make it much easier to meet the base load energy demand (energy demand is the biggest charge on your energy bill). It does this by facilitating the distribution of hot and cold air throughout the year. As a result, geothermal energy systems can potentially save you thousands on utilities and can easily improve heating and cooling efficiency in your building.
