District Energy
district energy systems are incredibly resilient. At Creative Energy we have a reliability track record of over 99.99% for over 50 consecutive years.

District energy is the centralized generation and distribution of thermal energy to a group of buildings within a neighbourhood. The thermal energy is then delivered to customers through a network of interconnected underground pipes, and heat exchangers at each building which are commonly referred to as Energy Transfer Stations, or ETS’s. Therefore, district energy eliminates the need for each building to have individual boilers, chillers, heat pumps, and cooling towers.

Utilizing economies of scale, cost effective low-carbon district energy technologies can greatly improve environmental performance by significantly reducing GHG emissions. This leads to a significant reduction in each building's carbon footprint within a connected neighbourhood.

As urbanization grows, populations increase, climate change pushes forward and existing systems age, it’s more important than ever that our essential infrastructure is as resilient as possible to handle whatever the future holds. Through a "technology-agnostic" approach, all of Creative Energy’s projects tailor green solutions to the local environment, finding the best fit for cities, consumers and sustainability initiatives.

How District Energy Works
District energy eliminates the need for each building to have individual boilers, chillers, heat pumps and cooling towers, making them well-suited for high-density urban centres, industrial complexes, civic hubs, hospitals and university campuses.
Business as usual

Individual boilers, chillers, and cooling towers deliver each building thermal energy, increasing cost, maintenance and environmental footprint.

District Energy

Thermal energy generation is centralized and delivered to customers through a piping network, and small heat exchangers at each building.
