Commercial building owners save energy costs with Geoexchange solutions!

Save Energy Costs In Commercial Real Estate

The market for geoexchange solutions in Canada is large and growing each year. Geoexchange currently provides heating and cooling solutions to millions of buildings worldwide. Early adopters like Sweden and Switzerland are using geoexchange in more than 70% of new homes. In North America, this is less than 1%. CleanEnergy intends to change that by offering a quality design/build (turnkey) product and working with developers and engineers to advance this rapid growth market in Canada.

 There is unlikely to be a larger mitigating effect of greenhouse gas emissions and the resulting global warming impact of buildings from any other current, market-available single technology, than from Geoexchange.

 All types of commercial buildings are choosing geoexchange as their heating and cooling option to reduce operating costs, provide a safer work or living environment and to differentiate from the competitors. Below are a variety of different buildings where geoexchange has been recently installed by CleanEnergy.

Featured Installations:

 Condominium Development – Toronto, ON

CleanEnergy was selected to supply engineering, drilling and installation on a 132 suite, eight story condo development on Sudbury Street in Toronto for a large real estate developer. The geoexchange system will provide 100% of heating and cooling to all the condominium suites. This project is unique in that it utilizes the ground under the building, in fact, under three stories of underground parking garage, for the installation of a vertical ground loop.

The 66 vertical boreholes were drilled at a depth of 500 feet each in the foundation pit beneath the building prior to construction.

 CleanEnergy is now working with the same developer on the design and installation of geoexchange ground loops and equipment for several new condominium buildings scheduled for construction in 2010 through 2012.

City Pool – Cambridge, ON

 CleanEnergy was selected to provide a vertical geoexchange system comprised of 44 vertical boreholes with ground loop to a depth of 397 feet, plus tie-in, to heat the city swimming pool and cool the gymnasium. CleanEnergy was initially approached by the project’s engineering company to assess the geoexchange design. CleanEnergy’s design review identified significant opportunities for design improvement and efficiencies

Elementary School – Kelowna, BC

Terasen Inc. (Terasen), an energy solutions provider, and CleanEnergy will replace the existing heating and cooling system with a geoexchange system at an Elementary School in West Kelowna. Terasen signed a deal with the local School District to operate the geoexchange system, which will help the school manage its energy costs and reduce its carbon footprint.

“As one of the first utility companies in Canada to include alternative energy solutions as part of its regulated energy service offerings, our deal with the School District will help them use energy efficiently and benefit the environment,” stated Doug Stout, Vice President, Energy Solutions and External Relations at Terasen Gas and Fortis, BC.

Arena – Fredericton, NB

CleanEnergy and IceKube Systems were selected to supply the ice making equipment and geoexchange system as part of this new $29.8 million facility that will feature both an Olympic-size ice surface and a 1,500 seat NHL-size ice surface that will be home to the local University men’s and women’s ice hockey teams as well as the Amateur Speed Skating Club. The two-level complex will also house walking/running tracks, community event rooms, multi-purpose meeting rooms and kitchen facilities.

The ice making equipment together with the geoexchange system will create ice for the rinks, heat and cool the complex, and store extra thermal energy to serve other buildings on site or in the vicinity.

 “Geoexchange is one of the cheapest and most reliable ways to heat and cool most buildings today”
