Fēnix Designed Energy District Morphs Master Planned Community into Massive Thermal Energy Asset

02 Feb 2018

Green energy innovator Fēnix Energy (Fēnix) has partnered with an award winning multinational developer to design, build and operate a new thermal Network Energy System® across a high-rise development spanning 12 acres. When complete, the 4 million square feet mixed-use development in the heart of Burnaby, BC will be powered by an innovative system that harvests and reuses the thermal energy of its buildings; creating an asset that provides sustained economic and environmental returns.

"We believe buildings have untapped potential," commented Adrian Ryan, Director, Business Development. "The conventional way of developing commercial real estate portfolios was to invest in 'business as usual' mechanical systems within buildings. The 'Fēnix approach' is to partner with developers and utilities to deliver high-grade energy infrastructure, enabling clients to harvest, store and trade thermal energy. By analyzing the projected energy consumption of high-rise buildings and mixed-use developments, we prove a business case, finance, deliver and operate complete Thermal Energy Assets," Adrian continued. "With cities on the frontline of the climate change struggle, imagine the potential we can release by greening our buildings to ensure they provide perpetual returns," he concluded.
