This publication has been developed and written as a result of a Carbon Trust funded collaborative research project, undertaken in partnership with London Underground Limited and supported by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers. The project enabled the research team to demonstrate the use of a ground coupled cooling system in Victoria tube station, on the London Underground. This is a topic of growing interest, as the demand for cooling of public facilities is growing, but there is also a strong policy drive to avoid the installation of carbon intensive cooling systems.

The project undertaken by London South Bank University has explored the application of ground coupled cooling in a novel environment. The authors have reviewed both the literature and the theoretical basis for ground coupled cooling. They have also reviewed the technology of existing systems, focusing on the design objectives, component and system performance, parameter measurement, control strategy and relative achievement of system aims.

The information produced provides a basis for the application of ground coupled cooling systems, including the extraction of cooling from the existing groundwater abstraction, where, for example, pumping is needed to reduce the groundwater level, eliminating the need for energy intensive cooling systems.

The authors and the Institution acknowledge the support and input of the Carbon Trust and of London Underground Limited.

The authors wish to note that London South Bank University’s involvement with groundwater cooling based systems has been on a conceptual basis only and London Underground Limited and its consultants are responsible for the detailed design, delivery and operation of these systems.
