Wednesday, April 10 • 4:00–5:00 PM • Session Room 2
This presentation will focus on overcoming some of the hurdles involved in electrification of skyscrapers and other large buildings in dense environments. Because most cooling towers, chillers, and boilers are located near the top floor of building, part of electrification requires that hydronic piping be run to the street level to utilize existing infrastructure as a heat sink and a heat source. There is a growing need for dewatering infrastructure such as below grade floors, parking garages, subway tunnels. These are operations that may be dual sourced for geothermal exchange. The session will cover some of these heat exchange strategies and opportunities such as waste water thermal energy recovery, and the thermal capacity of water mains, etc.
