Calgary District Heating, Sponsor, Thermal Energy Solution

The Calgary District Energy Centre is the heart of a thermal network that extends 5,500 metres underground to bring centralized heating to commercial, institutional and residential buildings across downtown. The sleek facility on the edge of Calgary’s downtown could be mistaken as an office building, but take a closer look through its street-level windows and instead of desks and cubicles you’ll see a network of pipes. The pipes carry thermal energy, in the form of hot water, cold water or steam, and deliver it as space heating and domestic hot water, bringing with it greater efficiency and fewer emissions than conventional heating systems.
