enOware GmbH received the European Geothermal Innovation Award 2017 during the opening session of GeoTHERM exhibition and Congress 2017 in Offenburg, Germany. The award was given for their miniaturised sensor which allows to professionally plan, monitor and measure near-surface geothermal probes.
Commenting on the award, Ruggero Bertani, Enel Green Power, President of EGEC and member of the jury said, “The product developed by enOware shows that there are high-tech innovations also for shallow geothermal, which can assist planners and designers for the development of advanced ground source systems, and convince the customers of the reliability of geothermal heating and cooling. This kind of innovation, with its potential to facilitate GSHP system design by decreasing costs and increasing efficiency, is a good step forward for further developing the market in Europe.”
“The innovation of the product is that the miniaturized sensor system can measure temperature and pressure very precisely. It can be used to optimise geothermal probes planning and performance,” said Simeon Meier, enOware Managing Director and CTO. “It is good to see that recognition is awarded also for advancement in shallow geothermal.”
