Geothermal energyProject Yanderra Shallow Geothermal Solar Systems Demonstration Project
This second Lessons Learnt Report covers the importance of adequate planning around existing commercial poultry operations.
Ground Source Systems Pty Ltd is developing a hybrid geothermal system for heating and cooling a commercial poultry breeding facility in Yanderra, NSW to demonstrate its effectiveness and its financial & environmental benefits to the rural industries. The hybrid geothermal system comprises a ground-source heat pump (GSHP) system in part fed by a solar PV, and with gas back-up. A GSHP system is being installed to replace in full or in part LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) as a fuel for heating and evaporative cooling for a single poultry shed. The typical mid-sized poultry operation at the Yanderra demonstration site is expected to provide an important case study to drive uptake across the sector.
