Thermal Energy Solutions
What We Do

We’re leaders in developing, building, and operating the low-carbon energy infrastructure of tomorrow.

We deliver efficient and reliable heating and cooling solutions to create sustainable communities across Canada and the United States. Our proven track record of developing systems that integrate the right technologies for the application — based on environmental, social, operational, and financial considerations — have earned us a trusted reputation in the sectors we serve.

District Energy Systems consist of a central plant supplying energy to a surrounding area. By sharing energy efficiently across several buildings, the system provides efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly heating and cooling.

Discrete or traditional systems provide heating and cooling using mechanical equipment located in each individual building.


Minimum 99.5% uptime reliability
across all our systems.


Over 100 million sq. feet of connected floor area at buildout, and growing.


Up to 85% reduction in annual GHG emissions.

Who We Serve


New Developments

We help developers and building owners navigate the complex changes driven by new technologies, stringent building code and greenhouse gas intensity requirements to implement long-term sustainable solutions that save time and money. Connecting to our centralized system is straight forward and provides significant cost and space savings, eliminating the need for mechanical rooms and enabling the beneficial use of rooftop or parking spaces. In addition, building owners can realize further savings by avoiding ongoing O&M and equipment replacement costs while benefiting from a simplified and flexible design.

Institutional Campuses

We collaborate with educational institutions to provide innovative energy solutions that plan for future campus growth, new development on universities’ endowment lands, decarbonize legacy systems and meet aggressive carbon reduction and sustainability targets. Through our partnerships we foster research and collaboration opportunities, creating the campus as a living lab that integrates academic teaching with real-world application to transform campuses into sustainable and vibrant communities while training the next generation of policy makers, practitioners, and global citizens.

As environmental objectives become increasingly important across all levels of government, district energy has been identified as a key tool in meeting sustainability and carbon reduction goals. We use our comprehensive understanding of public-private partnerships to help municipal decision-makers accelerate climate policies alongside the opportunity to participate in various forms of ownership arrangements. Our systems allow communities to be more resilient to the effects of climate change while providing the flexibility to adapt to future development plans and evolving technologies.

Dockside Green Energy Utility

Residential / Commercial

We provide homeowners and tenants with reliable heat, hot water and cooling at a cost similar to traditional in-building applications (on a lifecycle basis) while simultaneously taking action on climate change. Our rates are transparent and all-inclusive, eliminating the need for separate mechanical equipment maintenance and replacement and reducing strata reserve funds and operating costs.

District Energy 101

District energy systems centralize the production of heating or cooling to buildings within a service area.

They provide continuous, worry-free access to thermal energy without the need for on-site boilers, furnaces, or air conditioning systems.

Benefits of District Energy



Reductions in input energy costs through greater efficiencies, and the ability to take advantage of price and supply fluctuations.



The system’s energy efficiency and use of alternative energy sources reduces Greenhouse Gas emissions and minimizes the community’s carbon footprint.



District energy greatly reduces on-site HVAC system maintenance costs, staffing needs, and safety requirements.
