NEWS FROM THE SECTOR
A success story in geothermal energy installation

noticia

The Alexandra complex (Sabadell) exemplifies the advantages of installing geothermal energy in a building. In this case, 168 public housing units, a library and a service home for the elderly have been air-conditioned with this type of energy. Given the scale of the project (a total floor area of 18,976 m2), an efficient and cheap system was needed to install air-conditioning systems in the building.

A 661 kWt geothermal power system was installed in the complex, with 11 geothermal heat pumps and a 6,370 metre collector. Distribution is carried out through fan coil units and underfloor heating.

The savings associated to the use of geothermal energy are significant, after analysing the system data for a one year

period. If we compare the library heated with geothermal energy with another area with the same dimensions using a conventional heat pump, we can see that energy savings represent 48%, while economic savings represent 66%. In the case of the housing units, economic savings compared to using gas and electricity were 39%, with energy savings going up to 63%.

noticia

The building received the maximum energy efficiency rating ("A") as proof of its high energy efficiency. This is the maximum energy qualification issued by the Catalan Energy Institute of the Autonomous Government of Catalonia.

The Alexandra complex has also gained recognition in the 2010 Awards for Best Practises in Subsidized Housing, awarded by the Spanish Association of Public Housing and Land Developers.
