District Energy Sharing System
Blatchford’s district energy sharing system works by centralizing energy production in neighbourhood energy centres and circulating it through underground pipes to all the buildings within the community. By sharing and centralizing the energy that homes and businesses need, buildings use significantly less energy than if each building had their own equipment.
To make the system even more environmentally-friendly, Blatchford Renewable Energy will also be tying in renewable energy sources, like geoexchange, sewer heat recovery and solar panels, into the system.
By having high-efficiency buildings, utilizing renewable energy sources and sharing energy, Blatchford homes and buildings will produce approximately 75% fewer greenhouse gas emissions in comparison to a typical building in a community in Edmonton.
