Coverage of waste heat since June 27, 2022.

BCUC approves Senakw district energy plant

"...The Oct. 26 decision allows CESLP to build a power plant in a parkade to be constructed next to Chestnut Street, on the west of the Senakw site, for more than $30 million. CESLP will operate the low carbon electrified energy system for its only customer, developer Nch’kay West, with electric chillers and heat captured from Metro Vancouver sewage..."

Tapping sewage for clean energy is the ultimate circular-economy play

"...The heart of the project is a cutting-edge heat exchanger from Huber, a German firm, that takes the thermal energy out of the sewage, concentrates it, and then uses it to replace the natural gas Toronto Western burns to run its massive boilers and chillers. The sewage travels in a closed loop out of that big main, through the heat exchanger, and then back into the sewer. The technology works in reverse in the summer, removing heat from the hospital and transferring it into the sewage..."

Metro Vancouver college to use

"...What Patel has dubbed as the “holy grail of sewage pipes” is a sewer interceptor that carries large amounts of waste from surrounding neighbourhoods and sends it to the Iona Wastewater Treatment Plant, according to Derek Pope, branch manager of the Neighbourhood Energy Utility (NEU).  ..."

First Nation leading charge with Canada's largest battery storage

"...This utility-scale project, several years in the making, will provide backup storage to Canada’s most populous province and is being built by Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC) and NRStor, a storage start-up, with $50 million in backing from the Canada Infrastructure Bank. (Tesla, Northland Power and Aecon are also partners. ) SNGRDC CEO Matt Jamieson (of the Tuscarora Nation) rhymes off the benefits: local jobs, cleantech investment, emission reductions and a major boost for the region’s clean energy infrastructure, in which Six Nations is a significant investor..."

Squamish Nation unhappy Senakw energy system undergoing public hearing

"...The CESLP application noted that the civic services agreement required the low-carbon district energy system, which the BCUC describes as an “electrified energy system that provides cooling with electric chillers … and provides heating with captured waste heat from the cooling equipment and reclaimed heat from a Metro Vancouver main sewer line using high-temperature heat pumps. ”..."

Gasoline versus electric cars? Here’s how their life cycle emissions compare in Canada

"...As the top red line on the chart shows, burning gasoline creates sky-high emissions. In fact, gasoline is even climate-dirtier than coal. Burning gasoline in a car emits more CO2 per unit of energy than burning coal in a power plant..."

Smithers Climate Action group sets implementing plans as priority for town

"...By signing the BC Climate Action Charter, the Town of Smithers has committed to carbon neutrality in corporate operations, to measure and report their greenhouse gas emissions, and to create a more compact and more energy-efficient community. In the past few years, the town made significant steps toward meeting its goal by creating foundational plans..."

Energy efficient waterfront city block has its own harbor inside

"..."Having spent my formative years as an architect in Holland at the end of the 20th century, it feels like a homecoming to now get to contribute to the architecture of the city that I have loved and admired for so long," said Bjarke Ingels, founder of BIG. "Our Sluishuis is conceived as a city block of downtown Amsterdam floating in the IJ Lake, complete with all aspects of city life. Towards the city, the courtyard building kneels down to invite visitors to climb its roof and enjoy the panoramic view of the new neighborhoods on the IJ..."

Konvekta AES-Mode for e-bus heating: energy efficiency grows 50%

"...A CO2 heat pump system draws a large part of the required energy from the air and not from the battery. This system operates more than 50% more efficiently than an electric system, Konvekta points out. The new software add-on module, the AES mode (Additional Energy Storage), eliminates the need for an additional heater..."
