Municipalities have been at the forefront of District Energy Systems in Canada. Forward thinking municipalities have led the charge in energy reduction and District Energy has been at the core. Many municipalities big and small have realized that reducing energy consumption is crucial to the future prosperity of their communities. Many communities have also looked to Combined Heat and Power, not only to reduce their carbon footprint, but also as an emergency power source. When Hurricane Sandy damaged the electricity grid in New York, it was the communities with CHP that recovered the quickest.
Colleges and Universities
Most College and University campuses in North America has district energy systems some dating back a century. Combined heat and power also makes a lot of sense for campuses because they have high electricity needs and it is more economical to generate their own base load. The waste heat off of that generation is then used in the thermal grid to provide highly efficient space heating.
Hospitals and Corporate Campuses
Hospitals, health care centers, and corporate campuses have special needs due to their unique energy loads and reliability concerns. FVB Energy understands these requirements and has successfully addressed the energy system faced by the health care industry.
