Abstract : The purpose of this manual is to describe the use of the Seasonal Thermal Energy Storage (STES) technology, particularly through the employment of wintertime cooling. The technology is a means to solve excessive temperature increase in ground source heat pump loops and subsurface media. It gives an example of a recently demonstrated application and provides Energy Managers (EM) and Facility managers (FM) the background to quickly prioritize and document application projects to increase energy efficiency and occupant comfort.
