In early 2020, Reshape was engaged by the City of Edmonton to identify and evaluate various district energy (DE) opportunities throughout the City and support the development of a City-wide DE strategy. Reshape was the lead consultant, with support from Kerr Wood Leidal and TorchLight Bioresources.

The project was completed in the following phases:

  • Identifying and prioritizing DE opportunity areas through data analysis and visualization, based on the City Plan, existing building gas use, low-carbon energy opportunities, and other publicly available data.
  • Reviewing the existing energy and climate policies in Edmonton and proposing a policy framework to support the development of DE in Edmonton. 
  • Proposing a vision for a “City-wide low-carbon district energy system” to fulfil the goals of the City’s Community Energy Transition Strategy.
  • Recommending a workplan for advancing DE development in Edmonton, including near term and long term actions.

The project deliverables included numerous presentations and workshops, in addition to a comprehensive final report. The project is expected to be complete in 2021.
