  • Geothermal Modelling - Dakota Community Centre Case Study

    March 18, 2020  12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
    Manitoba Hydro Place 360 Portage Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3C 0G8

    What does it take to successfully install and operate a geothermal system?
    Sustainable Buildings Manitoba is excited to host Mr. Ed Lohrenz for a live demonstration of his new geo-thermal software tool GEOfease.  With over thirty years of experience around the globe, Mr. Lohrenz can typically cut the upfront costs of geo-thermal installations by 40-60% using improved design techniques. His new GEOfease software enables local practitioners to achieve similar results, while also ensuring new geo-thermal systems are designed with a proper energy balance for long-term efficient operation. His presentation will use the Dakota Community Centre in Winnipeg as a case study of how geo-thermal heat exchangers can re-purpose waste heat from indoor ice rinks to replace natural gas heating demand in nearby buildings.
    Ed Lohrenz is the author of the Certified GeoExchange Design course adopted by the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) and certified by the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE). His portfolio includes local projects such as the Seasons of Tuxedo Mall, Alt Hotel, Selkirk Hospital and Steinbach Credit Union, alongside international projects such as the new 3 million square foot airport terminal planned for JFK airport in New York City.
    Sustainable Building Manitoba is proud to be partnering with Manitoba Non-Profit Housing Association on this event.
