Abstract

This study involves an evaluation of the design and construction process for a soil-borehole thermal energy storage (SBTES) system installed in a sandy-silt deposit. A series of simplified numerical simulations were performed to understand the role of different variables on the heat storage in the SBTES system. The results indicate that soils with lower thermal conductivity have less lateral heat loss, and that arrays with smaller borehole spacings permit more concentrated storage of heat at higher temperatures.
