Ground Source Seminar
Thursday 27 September 2012
The GSHPA's Third Technical Seminar on 27 September proved to be a fascinating confluence of current thinking in the world of geothermal engineering and sustainable use of thermal energy storage in the ground. The seminar was kindly hosted by the SEREN project which is led by Cardiff University's Geoenvironmental Research Centre.
