Aeowyn Kendall was brought to our attention when she interviewed Aztech’s president John Ciovacco for her master’s thesis involving the intersections of renewable energy and the electrification of the building sector. Her work focused on geothermal energy systems and potential policies that might enable the advancement of the technology in the northeastern US. This included modeling the temperature response of the ground at various setback distances from adjacent ground loop systems. Aeowyn also looked at the social science to identify emerging patterns regarding how shallow geothermal can be better integrated into the energy infrastructure and government policy.
Aeowyn will be researching ground source heat pump best practices and design specifications including quality assurance / inspection tools for large commercial and Thermal Energy Network (TEN) systems.
She has a BS in Physics from Messiah University, and a MS in Earth Sciences, Hydrology from the University of New Hampshire.
