Most people in Australia and New Zealand live in urban areas, and urban population is predicted to keep rising. Housing, infrastructure and services must continue to meet this increased demand, and look for smarter ways to do it.
Part of ENGIE’s strategy in leading the energy transition is to decentralise energy production wherever possible. District Energy is part of the solution, and is widely recognised as a sustainable, cost-effective heating and cooling solution through the provision of hot water/steam to heat buildings and chilled water to cool buildings.
With over 380 District Energy schemes in 13 countries developed and operated over 30 years, ENGIE has the local and global expertise to provide a comprehensive service for District Energy, encompassing:
- Initial feasibility/financial viability studies
- Provision of finance for projects
- System design
- Installation and commissioning
- Project management
- On-going operation and maintenance
- Contract energy management
We are currently developing large District Energy Schemes in Australia (in Queensland, for cooling) and have developed a project in New Zealand (in Christchurch, for heating and cooling), and there are many examples of our work around the world in the video below.
