Use of heat from a snow melting installation in a parking lot surface as a heat regeneration source for underground heat storage via borehole heat exchangers

Abstract: In summer, thermal energy can be recovered and used as a source of heat regeneration in the rock mass of an underground thermal energy storage. This paper describes one method of recuperating energy from solar radiation and its use for balancing heat losses due to increased thermal energy consumption in the heating season. The parking surface is described, designed as an installation for de-snowing, i.e. for receiving/transporting heat to the rock mass during periods of high solar radiation intensity and high air temperatures. The problem caused by shading of the parking surface area on the obtained measurement results is addressed. The main part of the paper is devoted to an applied procedure and the results generated. Conclusions are drawn from the results and analysis.
