Energy Sheet PilesEnergy sheet piles are thermally activated in an environmentally friendly way via groundwater in soils or in flowing waters. The system has a very high efficiency compared to other ground coupled collector systems with optimal long term stability and durability. Complete dismantling is possible at any time if necessary.
When combined with a cistern, the water can be collected as a heat reservoir during heavy rains and used for irrigation during periods of drought.
Compared to conventional heating systems, only 20% of the electricity or gas required is needed to generate heat. his results in a savings potential of over 80% in energy costs.
