Drastic changes in air temperature can make heating and cooling energy-intensive and expensive. Four to six feet underground, however, the temperature is relatively constant. Geothermal HVAC systems utilize this thermal reservoir to decrease the amount of energy needed for heating and cooling. This technology can increase energy efficiency and cut the high costs of heating and cooling our buildings.
This article addresses some of the common myths associated with geothermal HVAC systems:

Another source of inspiration is the website of the Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change Conference. This is now an annual conference, which is largely focused on local planning in action. That is, what kinds of local programs and activities might you aim for, considering which have proven exciting and successful already? See www.beccconferenece.org and don't miss the YouTube videos of conference "lightening presentations". Also, look for a trend among presentations that use social networking, competitions, and other new marketing techniques. CEA has tapped these resources from time to time for our own work.
