Thermal energy system technologies

We own, operate and maintain in-building thermal energy systems for space heating and cooling and domestic hot water. Some of the systems we work with include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • water or air source variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems
  • water or air source heat pumps
  • hydronic systems

As a developer, you’ll appreciate our years of experience, technical expertise and our ability to implement the best thermal energy solution for your project. You’ll also be able to leave the day-to-day operation with us while enjoying the economic benefits:

  • Financial savings: because we’re able to own a project’s thermal energy system, we can help offset the installation costs and improve the project’s bottom line. 
  • System performance and optimization:  we’ll focus on your energy efficiency and sustainability objectives. We do this through careful management of system performance and optimization over the long term.
  • Expertise: as BC’s leading thermal energy service provider, we’re able to draw on our expertise and engage with expert consultants/contractors to assist in managing the increasingly complex thermal energy systems you may be faced with on your project.
  • Liaison for energy sharing: if you have a diverse group of end-users, we can help align their interests and enable effective energy sharing for your project. We can also act as a third-party intermediary for operational issues.

As a customer, you’ll have the peace of mind of one stable rate and reliable round-the-clock service and support:

  • Simplicity: we offer one thermal energy rate that consolidates all related expenses into a single line item for you. One rate makes it easier for you to identify the costs associated with the thermal energy service. The rate includes:
    • cost of initial capital
    • operation and maintenance
    • commodity fuels
    • replacement or sustaining capital
    • insurance
  • Stable and predictable rates: our thermal energy rate is designed to mitigate fluctuating energy costs over the life of service, creating stable and predictable rates you can count on.
  • Peace of mind: we provide worry-free service by managing the complexities of the energy system. This includes: daily operation, maintenance, optimization and sustainment over the long term.
  • 24-hour support: we centrally monitor our energy systems and provide 24/7 emergency service support.
