Reliable, Resilient, Sustainable Heating and Cooling
District Energy systems produce steam, hot water, and/or chilled water at a central plant, then deliver the steam and water to individual buildings through a network of underground pipes. This process is considerably more energy efficient than traditional on-site heating and cooling systems, and typically requires less capital investment, risk, and operational costs than individual boilers or air conditioners.
District Energy also offers superb reliability. With a typical reliability of 99.99% and resiliency that is virtually impossible to match with in-building equipment, our district energy systems are the best choice for mission-critical needs.
Across the country, Cordia Energy’s district energy solutions provide heating and/or cooling to hundreds of millions of square feet of building space, including hospitals, college campuses, commercial office buildings, pharmaceutical plants, sports arenas, manufacturing facilities, government buildings, and mixed-use developments.
How it works
- The district energy plant produces steam, hot water, and chilled water at efficiencies not achievable through on-site heating and cooling.
- Steam, hot water, and chilled water are distributed to customers via a network of underground pipes.
- Customer buildings control their energy usage as normal.
- Centralized production reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and they can be even further reduced by incorporating alternative fuels and renewable electricity production methods.
