Feasibility Study on the Utilization of Geothermal Heat Pump(GHP) Systems in Japan

Low-enthalpy geothermal resources have not been utilized to their potential in the past. However, since vast tracts of low-enthalpy geothermal resources exist as energy in the form of differential temperatures, the reserves are estimated to be enormous. As a result, there is growing interest in using this untapped energy in order to reduce carbon dioxide emissions which are the main cause for global warming, one of todays most serious issues as addressed by the U.S. Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency documents.
