The most cost-effective, reliable way to rapidly decarbonize buildings.

Introducing eSteam™, the first commercial renewable thermal energy product in the U.S. to accelerate urban decarbonization.

Reliable Clean Energy When You Need It

Vicinity Energy tackles global energy problems on a local level, with local resources. We produce and distribute steam, hot water and chilled water directly through our vast network of underground pipes to provide heating, cooling, humidification, sterilization and other services to our customers. The benefits of district energy are numerous: eliminating the need for boiler and chiller plants in individual buildings, improving efficiency, lowering carbon and increasing reliability.

District energy is not only more efficient, more reliable and more resilient than conventional onsite generation, our clean steam has a lower carbon impact.
