Energy Saving by the Means of Geothermal Energy

Abeer S. Abu Raed and Ahmad H. Sakhrieh
Abstract—The Earth houses a vast energy supply in the form of geothermal resources. This energy can be used in several applications. In this work the potential of energy saving using geothermal energy in residential sector in Jordan was investigated. The use of geothermal energy for both domestic hot water and in HVAC systems was studied. Two types of geothermal heat exchangers were presented in this work; cast iron heat exchanger for HVAC systems and polyethylene for domestic hot water. Energy consumption can by reduced up to 30% by installing geothermal heat exchanger

Index Terms—Energy, geothermal, Jordan.
