What is District Energy?
An innovative and sustainable solution, district energy involves the production of thermal energy from a central plant that is transported through underground pipes. District energy is safer, more efficient, and more resilient than conventional onsite energy generation with a lower carbon impact—which is beneficial for businesses, communities, and the future.
In addition to improving energy infrastructures and providing 99.99% reliability, district energy doesn’t require onsite boilers or chillers—freeing up space, eliminating the risk of onsite combustion, and reducing upfront capital and ongoing operations and maintenance costs.
