• Whistler Athletes' Village Low Temperature District Energy System

  • Whistler, BC

Unlike most DES that use high-temperature water, this system is unique in that it uses low-temperature ambient heat from treated sewage effluent from the nearby Whistler wastewater treatment plant.  Flexible ambient heat source allows for heating and cooling for up to 2,200 residential users occupying 85,000 square meters of space.  Use of treated wastewater effluent heat reduces greenhouse gas emissions by over 95% by replacing natural gas.
