District Energy Systems

Integral Group’s approach to district energy systems leads the industry in innovating and implementing flexible, next-generation solutions with strong environmental and financial performance. Our low-exergy district energy system designs use heat pumps as primary energy conversion technologies in centralized or distributed configurations complemented with any combination of onsite low-carbon and low-exergy thermal sources, sinks and storage. Integral Group has developed the first ambient temperature loop design, a versatile backbone for a multitude of distributed low-exergy thermal sources or sinks that can also be complemented with onsite renewable electricity generation and storage and microgrid systems.
