On December 18, 2015, the Honourable Jim Carr, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, and Raymond Louie, President of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and Acting Mayor of the City of Vancouver, BC, announced a grant of $162,250 from the Green Municipal FundTM (GMF) for the City of Burlington, ON.
The grant supports a study that will determine whether an integrated district energy system (DES) — a centralized heating and cooling facility serving the community — would be more energy efficient and effective in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than using individual systems for each building. Additional study costs will be covered by the city and Burlington Electricity Services Inc.
