This course will describe several geothermal systems and their applications. We will look specifically at how geothermal systems can be integrated into green buildings, and at how the LEED rating system addresses the use of geothermal heat and energy.
- Describe the difference between geothermal energy and geothermal heat systems
- Determine situations where geothermal systems may be appropriate for green buildings
- Analyze the costs and paybacks associated with geothermal systems
