Water from abandoned mines as a heat source: practical experiences of open- and closed-loop strategies, United Kingdom

Article English OPEN
Banks, David; Athresh, A; Al-Habaibeh, A; Burnside, N;

Pilot heat pump systems have been installed at two former collieries in Yorkshire/Derbyshire, England, to extract heat from mine water. The installations represent three fundamental configurations of heat exchanger. At Caphouse Colliery, mine water is pumped through a h... View more
