Iran Fuel Conservation Company (IFCC) has domestically manufactured a geothermal heat pump (GHP) system.
According to an official with the company, Aqil Barati, the system is highly energy efficient and plays a key role in reduction of greenhouse gases.
Today, with the ever-increasing demand for air conditioning and, consequently, an increase in the need for more electricity, to reduce the share of power consumption in the summer and use gas for generation of energy (Peak Shaving), these systems make up a significant part of the mix of manufactured products in many developed countries, he said.
With vast supply of natural gas, our country, Iran, can provide part of the consumer’s cooling needs by reducing the demand for electricity (especially in the summer), Barati argued.
In the winter, with heating, a decrease in gas consumption in the country could be expected, he added.
