Within the work lines in sustainable energy field of the EnergyLab Technology Centre (Vigo, Spain), associated with the technologies that are under investigation by this centre, it is developed a study about the Life Cycle Analysis (hereinafter, LCA) over a geothermal heatpump (hereafter, GSHP) installation in a nursery school in the province of Pontevedra (Galicia, Spain), and its comparison with the fuel boiler system prior to GHP. Thus, with the use of computer tools and following specific rules about the calculation of LCA, assessing the environmental impact of each system, and perform the appropriate comparison in order to quantify the savings emissions and the improvement in sustainability related to the replacement of diesel boiler system by the GSHP system.
