Due to increasing pollution and related climate changes it is necessary to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. One of the possible ways is to use the system for underground accumulation of heat energy. In the paper the processes on the relation between ground – borehole and the fluid in a collector is presented, and the reasons for the justification of the use of heat pumps.
