SHPEGS – Solar Heat Pump Electrical Generation System

Submitted by Stuart Jackson on May 16, 2009

This project that began in 2006 uses a combination of direct and indirect solar collection to generate electricity and store thermal energy in an economically and environmentally friendly way for moderate climates like Canada, northern USA, Asia and Europe.

The SHPEGS system attempts to use geothermal storage and cold winter temperatures to build an electrical generation system that matches the electrical usage as closely as possible. This document breaks down how the technology works with charts and graphs, as well as the benefits of the system.
