Durham College’s Simcoe Geothermal Project, featuring a borehole field comprised of 150 wells for an Underground Thermal Energy Storage (UTES) system, was developed to achieve the primary objectives of GHG reduction and connection to student learning. This presentation will review key decisions, approaches and lessons learned through the planning, funding, development and construction of this newly commissioned Geothermal Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) project and its operation in a fuel-flexible campus. The approach to maximizing academic connection to the project through numerous enablers and the expected impact on expanding applied student learning opportunities will also be discussed.
