GSJ in cooperation with Chulalongkorn University (Thailand) and Akita University (Japan) has introduced the Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) System in CCOP Regions since April 2013. In April 2019, DMR, CCOP, GSJ together with MISAWA Environmental Technology of Japan have agreed to continue the project of Energy-saving Cooling System using a Groundwater Heat Source, funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). They have convened a very important workshop on GSHP during the 55th CCOP Annual Session in 2019 in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
GSHP technology is very important to CCOP in two aspects. Firstly, this technology is a practical energy-saving cooling system that utilizes groundwater heat sources and saves electricity expenses related to air conditioning. GSHP will be an important technology for CCOP countries to practice carbon neutrality which is a critical issue for the global society. Secondly, I believe that this project can provide a new model of how the private sector can successfully collaborate within the CCOP region.
This publication contains papers and presentations at the CCOP-DMR-MISAWA-GSJ Workshop for Application of Groundwater Heat Source on 5 November 2019, held in parallel with the 55th CCOP Annual Session in Chiangmai, Thailand.
