Enwave District Energy Project

Toronto, Ontario

Our Utilities operating sector has a long history of building renewable energy projects. Within this group, Aecon has over 20 years of experience building district energy, geoexchange and solar projects across Canada and has developed strong alliance partnerships with renewable energy utility providers.

Aecon Utilities continues to provide construction services to support Enwave Energy’s district heating and cooling services in Toronto. Enwave – the largest district energy operator in North America – provides low-carbon heating and cooling for over 150 buildings in downtown Toronto. Enwave and Aecon established a joint implementation team to analyze, manage and execute the civil, mechanical and electrical construction associated with bringing buildings in the downtown core of Toronto online to Enwave’s heating and cooling services.

Aecon Utilities is currently Enwave’s prime civil contractor for the western expansion project that will create mass distribution capacity to the King West neighbourhood in Toronto, including The Well – a mixed-use development featuring more than 3 million square feet of retail, office and residential space. As a result, Enwave will provide more reliable, low-carbon cooling and heating to these future communities and the projects will reduce dependence on the city’s electricity grid. The collaboration demonstrates a future-forward commitment to building more resilient cities.

Did you know Enwave was recently featured in a United Nations case study on energy efficiency in buildings for this work? We’re proud to work with Enwave to deliver this sustainable, resilient and low-carbon solution.
