Air conditioning in Battersea’s Riverlight development will be provided by a ground source district cooling and heating scheme and three large chillers. IFTech director Nick Boid explains how it works
Designed and installed by ground source system designer and installer IFTech Ltd, the environmentally sustainable scheme is believed to be the largest open loop ground source project of its kind in the UK.

Underground storage of thermal energy in aquifers can have an important contribution to the ambitious EU energy objectives for 2020. The Netherlands is a leader in the application of ATES with 1,000 systems in operation. To accomplish savings in total energy consumption of 2% the number of systems will have to increase to 20,000 in 2020.
Paper on the history, applications and systems development of Thermal Energy Storage in Aquifers in the Netherlands. When this article was published in the Netherlands over 400 systems were in operation. Most had a cooling capacity of between 500 and 2,000 kWt. By 2009 there were more than 1,000 systems. The biggest project is a thermal power plant of 20 MWt.
