How can we heat and cool homes in a safe, non-emitting and affordable way? Well, one nonprofit says networked geothermal systems are the answer.
Networked geothermal uses ground source heat pumps to heat and cool buildings without fossil fuels in neighborhoods or city blocks, cutting down on methane leakage. The nonprofit Home Energy Efficiency Team is working with natural gas utilities and state policymakers to transition gas utilities to use more networked geothermal systems.
Zeyneb Magavi, the group's co-executive director, joined the podcast to discuss current efforts to transition more of the country from gas to geo. She spoke with S&P Global Commodity Insights reporter Tom Tiernan about projects in the works, policies that are aiding the move to geothermal and the costs both utilities and utility customers could expect from transitioning to a networked geothermal system.
