Our Growing Network of Connected Buildings

District Energy Growth

Connecting Calgary

Calgary District Heating currently supplies thermal heat to 22 buildings via our Thermal Distribution System throughout downtown and the East Village. Our energy network is available to both new builds and retrofits, with relatively minor work required for existing buildings. Our network of connected buildings in the downtown core and East Village have demonstrated the reliability, cost effectiveness and efficiency of district energy systems. We are charting the path to carbon neutrality in the centre of Calgary!

Commissioned in 2012, Calgary District Heating Inc is constantly expanding and provides resilient, reliable, and sustainable space heating and domestic hot water to 22 buildings in Calgary’s East Village and Downtown core.

Connected to our District Energy System since 2013, Studio Bell is home to The National Music Centre, amplifying Canada’s music story through exhibitions, concerts, and events. Their non-profit museum houses artifacts, recordings, and tidbits of music history. 

Calgary’s New Central Library is a stunning architectural masterpiece that has quickly become a city landmark. Since opening its doors in 2018, it welcomed an average of 1M visitors yearly who have been warmed by the District Energy System.

With over 600 residential units heated by District Energy, Evolution Towers offers Calgarians the ultimate urban dwelling experience. Surrounded by amenities and local experiences, the Evolutions Towers are located just steps away from Calgary’s Bow River.

Calgary’s Telus Sky building is a striking, 60-storey skyscraper that has become a standout feature of the city’s skyline. It houses both residential and office spaces being provided domestic hot water and spacing heating from District Energy 24/7/365.

Connected to District Energy since 2012, Bow Valley College offers diploma, certificate, and upgrading programs from its main campus in Downtown Calgary. They are Calgary’s only community college, serving over 17,000 students. 

Serving as the first building connected to the District Energy System upon its commissioning in 2010, the Calgary Municipal Building (City Hall) is a sleek, contemporary design and state-of-the-art facilities have become a community hub.
