Report studies feasibility of renewable thermal technologies in Connecticut

The Yale University Center for Business and the Environment released a report on the feasibility of renewable thermal technologies (RTT) in the state of Connecticut, following remarks by Connecticut governor Dannel Malloy in July 2015 that promoted the state’s need to be a global leader on climate change.


Yale has published a feasibility study of RTT in the state of Connecticut.

According to the report, “The project includes a broad specter of RTTs, which will be evaluated with regards suitability for achieving Connecticut’s long term goals and visions. Examples of technologies are air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, solar thermal, biomass heating and district heating and cooling.”


District cooling was recently featured in an article on coolingZONE by Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. and the sustainable future of municipalities was also studied by Princeton University.


Yale released reports on the market potential of RTT in Connecticut as well as a field study on barriers and drivers to that technology being implemented. Among the RTT that were considered in the reports are solar thermal, biomass thermal, geothermal, heat pump technologies, cooling technologies, and cross-cutting technologies (district cooling, thermal energy storage, and hybrid energy systems).


According to the report, “There exist synergies across renewable energy technologies, distribution and consumption that can be exploited to realize the full potential of RTTs. Cross-cutting technologies are technologies that can be used to enhance the thermal energy output of a renewable energy source, to enable a greater fraction of the output by the system to be used, or to allow for exploitation of renewable sources that would otherwise be difficult to exploit.”
