What We Did

District Energy Business Model, Sustainability Strategy

Urban Equation is leading the project team in developing a sustainability charter for this 60-acre mixed-use site. Our support includes leading stakeholder engagement and sustainability visioning sessions, developing the project sustainability charter, providing guidance for the community energy plan (provided by our energy modeller partner) and developing the business case for sustainability. Our business model estimates the financial impacts of options, including a geosource district energy provider and onsite renewable generation as well as incentives and funding strategies to outline a path to achieve a carbon neutral community at market costs.

“BG combined technical knowledge, development knowledge and passion about sustainability into an informative brief that inpsired our partnership to consider an alternate scheme”
