Blatchford Renewable Energy has been established to help achieve the City of Edmonton’s long term goal of 100% renewable energy and carbon neutrality for the Blatchford community. 

Blatchford Renewable Energy  will own and operate the community’s District Energy Sharing System (DESS), which will provide heating, cooling and hot water services. The DESS will deliver energy efficiently from a centralized source using ambient (room temperature) water that is then upgraded by heat pumps which provide both heating and cooling. The DESS will tie into renewable energy sources including geoexchange and sewer heat recovery.

Blatchford Renewable Energy operates as a municipal owned utility under the Blatchford District Energy Utility Fiscal Policy C597 and the Blatchford Renewable Energy Utility Bylaw 17943. The budget for the Utility reflects the strategic direction and initiatives identified in the 2020 - 2023 Blatchford Renewable Energy Utility Business Plan presented to the City’s Utility Committee on June 28, 2019.
