Energy Globe Winner

The UCI Headquarters Building in Ramallah, Palestine is the second largest geothermal heating and cooling project in the Middle East and North Africa, and the largest in Palestine. This green building utilizes a vertical closed loop installed at 120 meters deep. Two commercial heat pumps distribute hot and chilled water to a fan coil distribution system. No energy goes wasted in this system: heat extracted from this building in cooling is rejected to the earth and the building's hot water, increasing the geothermal system efficiency. In addition, a heat recovery fan coil is installed in the vent extract to gain energy from the conditioned ventilation system.

The UCI Headquarters Building's geothermal system was awarded the Energy Globe Award in 2008, the world award for sustainability, for its energy efficient design.
