District Energy

False Creek Neighbourhood Energy Utility (NEU)

District level wastewater filtering

Vancouver, BC

The NEU, with the assistance of a SHARC Energy waste water filtration system, provides low-carbon heat and hot water to buildings in the False Creek area through the recycling of waste water heat and the use of renewable natural gas for 395,000 m2 of residential, commercial and institutional space.

This results in substantial reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the building sector compared with the traditional methods of providing building heating and hot water.
