Coyle, F.J. 2014 Architects, engineers and energy managers perceptions of low temperature geothermal and biomass energy technologies : barriers to uptake and their potential solutions. Lower Hutt, N.Z.: GNS Science. GNS Science report 2014/12 116 p.
Abstract: This study utilised a focus group technique to explore architects, engineers and energy managers’ perceptions of low temperature geothermal (LTG) and biomass energy technologies. More specifically, the emphasis was on how they made decisions about heating and cooling systems, what they saw as barriers to uptake and solutions they identified, with the goal of expanding the New Zealand market for these technologies.
