The Heat Under Your Feet is a European campaign aimed at promoting the use of geothermal heat pumps and tackle some of the challenges and barriers that leave the potential of this technology unexplored or underdeveloped in many European countries. It is launched as part of the EU-Funded ReGeoCities project.
The heating and cooling sector for buildings is today, for the large majority, dominated by the use of fossil fuels such as natural gas and heating oil. This means it is contributing heavily to costly fossil fuels imports, exposure to price volatility and security of supply, and production of harmful greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Geothermal heat pumps are the perfect solution to replace fossil fuels and reverse these unsustainable situation. Their wide range of application, their efficiency, their reliability, all strongly contribute to provide affordable heat, to reduce emissions, and to save primary energy.
