This study performs the design and performance analysis of a novel solar-borehole thermal energy storage system to supply a complete heating solution to a residential high-rise building located in Ontario, Canada. Building total heat demand is estimated based on user demand and ambient temperature, a solar-thermal collector system and a borehole thermal energy storage system (BTES) are designed to generate and store the energy. A 1 1D numerical code is developed to solve the heat transfer phenomenon in BTES and is coupled to the solar collector system. A time-dependent dynamic simulation is performed over a year with hourly weather data with a time-step of 10 minutes and the observations are recorded.
