The Water-Energy Nexus and Geothermal Systems February 03 2019, 0 Comments

Jay Egg has just published an article on water as a thermal source, on the Professional Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Piping website.

Did you know the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that 350 billion kilowatt-hours per year of energy paid for by its citizens goes down the drain?



Jay, asserting water and energy systems are interdependent, describes how this wasted thermal energy can be harnessed for space and water heating. Rainwater, stormwater irrigation and run-off, greywater and treated sewage treatment plant effluent can all be used for the transfer and sharing of heat energy for heating and cooling needs.
