Ground Source Heat Pump Association
The ground source heat pump association was established in 2006, and its purpose is:
1. Promote the efficient and sustainable use of ground source heat pumps
2. Improving the understanding of the advantages of ground source heat pump
3. Formulate ground source installation standards
4. Encourage the development of the ground source heat pump industry to grow and grow
5. Assist, encourage and support high -standard training in the industry
6. Provide a forum for information exchange
7. Contact relevant agencies to benefit the industry
8. The interests of the government's representative ground source energy industry
Ground source heat pump standard
The ground source heat pump association has responded to the call of the ground source industry installation standards to define and maintain high -level installation quality, protect the environment and maintain the industry reputation.
These standards are drafted by GSHPA to help the designers and installers, architects and engineers designated by the ground source system. They can also help contractors to hire professional companies to install ground source systems.
Ground source heat pump standards provide concise information about materials and general specifications. They define the minimum material specifications, technical and qualifications to ensure that the installation meets the standards, or the contractor can determine the company they hire to meet the standards.
The first thing to be released was vertical drilling standards.
The second is the standard of ground source power stack.
The third is shallow ground source standards.
GSHPA -Conduct Code
Members include the installation staff, designers, consultants, drilling experts and suppliers of the ground source industry. You can find members in the GSHPA database.
Members of the ground source heat pump association are subject to their behavioral standards, which are standardized by members of the standards in advertising, sales, insurance, installation, service, legal obligations, complaints, and mediation.
Newcomers in the industry are invited to meet the highest practical standards and join the association to exchange knowledge and ensure that they can meet customer expectations. They have the opportunity to participate in the formulation of technical standards, have the opportunity to affect government policies through GSHPA member qualifications, and regularly update news that affects the ground source heat pump industry.
Renewable energy target
In order to achieve the 15% renewable energy target of 2020, we need to develop a new method of generating renewable energy in all departments (including thermal energy). The calories generated by renewable energy account for about 1% of the total heat demand -this may require rising to 12% to achieve our binding EU target. Without some form of fiscal assistance, we will not be able to expand renewable heat energy, because other forms of the heat energy are cheaper. This support will enable more people to afford renewable heat energy and reduce the cost by expanding the market to help reduce costs faster.
Set a very ambitious goal for increasing the supply of renewable energy.
Ground source energy is the most promising way to achieve economic renewable energy: heat pumps can transmit heat to buildings without using combustion or release CO2.
