Interesting article about what facility managers need to know about geothermal ground source systems.

As public pressure grows for property owners to reduce their carbon footprint, attention has shifted to renewable energy.

Geothermal systems provide a major environmental opportunity for the nation. Facility managers can play a vital role in exploring that opportunity and determining its implications for their properties.

Study shows captured CO2 could help utilize geothermal energy!

Study shows captured CO2 could help utilize geothermal energy!
There have been scientific studies looking into the approach of using CO2 as carrier for capturing geothermal energy.

A process that injects the greenhouse gas deep below ground then circulates it to extract heat and geothermal energy, has proven viable in a feasibility study by U of A researchers.

This Percy Ellis project which is entirely geothermal is close to completion.

This Percy Ellis project which is entirely geothermal is close to completion.
The building is located at 41 River Street in Toronto. It's located between Toronto's Regent Park neighbourhood and the Lower Don Valley.

Several measures have been taken to maximize environmental friendliness. Each unit's utilities will be separately metered for the amount of electricity, gas, and water consumed to encourage energy conservation while keeping monthly costs low for tenants. Geothermal energy is also being used throughout the building—harnessing the heat energy just feet below the ground, and converting it into warm air through the use of geothermal heat pumps—and resulting in big savings on energy costs.

Going green shaves operating costs and boosts branding for dealers!

Early adopters of green design are Richmond, B.C.-based Auto West BMW and Mini Richmond, which were named "The Most Sustainable BMW Dealership in the World" by the automaker in 2013.

The building uses geothermal heat, has a green roof, a water reclamation system, solar panels and a vertical wind turbine.
For a number of years, the dealership grew vegetables on the roof, which were donated to food banks.
