Construction Specifications Canada Vancouver Chapter – District Energy Systems: Intelligent Connection
In a region with increasing building envelope insulation requirements, planned step code implementation and improving building construction practices, is there a value in district energy systems? How does a modern, mixed-use development in a climate like Vancouver develop an innovative, local solution to achieve sustainability and resource recovery objectives? These questions and more will be answered in this presentation which will discuss the opportunity for ambient-temperature district energy.
On-site resource recovery can be a successful means of reducing a development’s environmental impact. This is highlighted by the City of Vancouver’s recent decision to remove district energy connectivity requirements and instead promote the adoption of site-specific low-carbon energy systems. A case study on the low-carbon, heat-recovery energy system that was successfully implemented at Marine Gateway will be presented.
