The module computes the Ground Source Heat Pump potential.
It is composed of several programs considering different limits (e.g. theoretical, planning, technical, economic/finacial constraints).
The module consists of the following different parts:

[status: testing] calculates for each single Borehole Heat Exchanger (BHE) the maximum power/energy potential, assessed through the G.POT method.

[status: not implemented yet] consider legal, ecological constraints and the user's recommendations to plan the use of the GSHP system

[status: testing] calculates the length of a BHE following the ASHRAE methodology.

[status: not implemented yet] computes the economic and financial feasibility of the ground source heat plants
