Next Generation District Energy Systems

Track: District Energy | Thursday, May 31, 2018 | 12:30pm – 2:30pm

District energy systems are gaining momentum across North America. However, the traditional “heating only” systems no longer meet the current needs of our society. Integral Group has developed innovative “next generation” district energy solutions that have stellar environmental performance; they provide heating and cooling, flexibility to accommodate “low-carbon” and “low-energy” sources, and energy conversion technologies. Using local and global case studies, this presentation outlines the methodology for developing and implementing the “next generation” DES.

Case Studies

  • YVR CORE, Sea Island, BC – New low-carbon central energy plant with vertical closed-loop geo-exchange system and DES distribution network for YVR
  • Oakridge Redevelopment, Vancouver, BC – New low-carbon central energy plant with vertical closed-loop geo-exchange system
  • Smith College, Northampton, MA – Campus Energy De-Carbonization study
