EnergyLab, a technological center for energetic sustainability and efficiency, and Gas Natural-Union Fenosa, one of the top ten European multinational energy companies and leader in terms of vertical gas and electricity integration in Spain and Latin America, are pioneers at releasing the first illustrative project in Spain on the feasibility of geothermic energy as a renewable energy source.
Geothermic energy is thermal energy stored at the land subsoil. Specifically, its implementation as a heat and cold source is being tested through the Geothermic Heat Pump.
To show the reduction in CO2 emission related to the use of the geothermic energy.
To demonstrate the project viability in three key aspects: technical, economic and environmental, the latter aiming at proving the reduction of CO2 emission associated with this renewable energy (70% compared to electricity, for example).
In order to do so, EnergyLab and Gas Natural-Union Fenos entrusted Indra with handling the technologic component of this ambitious and pioneering project, which consists in designing, developing, implementing and maintaining the real-time monitoring and management system of the Geothermic Heat Pump at the 30 facilities that form part of the pilot project.
