Our Downtown District Energy Centre is a shining example of how ENMAX Corporation and its subsidiaries applies fresh thinking that results in local solutions. Situated on the southwest corner of 4 Street and 9 Avenue – the gateway to one of Calgary’s most exciting upcoming developments, the East Village – the Downtown District Energy Centre is capable of supplying heat for up to ten million square feet of new and existing residential and commercial properties.
District energy, or district heating, traces its roots as far back as the popular hot water-heated baths and greenhouses of ancient Rome. It’s more efficient, has fewer emissions and is more cost-effective than conventional heating systems. Underground hot water pipes connect to a heat exchange interface between the piping system and the customer’s heating system, creating a closed-loop system that takes up much less space in the building and is more energy efficient than traditional commercial boilers.
Guidelines for Safe Construction in the Proximity of the Thermal Distribution Piping System
All customers are free to purchase natural gas services from the default supply provider or from a retailer of their choice and to purchase electricity services from the regulated rate provider or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of natural gas and electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase natural gas services or electricity services from, you will continue receiving natural gas and electricity from the distribution company in your service area. For a current list of retailers you may choose from, visit www.ucahelps.alberta.ca or call 310-4822 (toll free in Alberta).
