Does an otherwise qualified REPLACEMENT geothermal system qualify for the residential energy credit? My old heat pump failed and I replaced it with a new one.

Yes, a full replacement of the heat pump would be considered an improvement. 

The requirements for the credit are that the Geothermal Heat Pump meets the Energy Star Requirements.
