District energy systems are becoming increasingly common, particularly in North America. Traditionally, district energy systems have provided heating options only, but increasing global temperatures have given rise to the demand for campus-scale systems that can provide heating as well as cooling options. Integral Group is leading the industry with innovative solutions and approaches with the flexibility to incorporate a multitude of energy sources and end-use forms while remaining cost competitive.
Vladimir Mikler, Principal at Integral Group, details our approach and methodology to successful district energy design. His whitepaper covers understanding project context and client goals, energy demand profiles, and existing infrastructure and outlines steps to develop high-level strategies and identify energy sources and technologies.
