Sustainable: Aquifer project offers green energy model

By: Frank Jossi April 6, 2021 Finance & Commerce

Prospect Park may soon be the home of one of the largest projects ever built in the United States to heat and cool large buildings using underground aquifers.

Test wells underway now should confirm the viability of employing an aquifer system for heating and cooling two apartments and one proposed office building in Towerside Innovation District, a 370-acre area north of University Avenue between the University of Minnesota and Highway 280. The project is a collaborative effort that includes district energy consultant Ever-Green Energy, Towerside, the developer Wall Cos., and Minneapolis.

Successful Toronto Case Studies for District /Networked Geothermal Heating and Cooling Geoexchange Case Studies in the Greater Toronto Area These case studies summarize the experience of a number of geoexchange system owners/operators, and in some cases also provide monitoring data on system performance.  They discuss how and why the project were conducted, design of the system, details on implementation, project costs, and performance data, where available. The case studies are based on the findings from the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) companion reports titled “Closing the Loop: A Survey of Owners, Operators and Suppliers of Urban Geoexchange Systems in the Greater Toronto Area” and “Performance Assessment of Urban Geoexchange Projects in the Greater Toronto Area.”
