100-per-cent renewable energy neighbourhood to be created in Canada

The Canadian authorities are forwarding a project for establishing a fully renewable energy neighbourhood on the place of the old Blatchford Field airport located in Edmonton, the capital of Alberta, CBC News reported on Tuesday.

In particular, the executive committee recommended to invest $19.4 million in the first stage of the project's utility infrastructure needs. This world-class neighbourhood, which is designed to house 30,000 residents, will be a 100-per-cent renewable energy district.

Also, the city administration is going to retain control over the utilities. According to Mayor Don Iveson, the project will be repaid in prospect, either by utility fees, in case the city runs the utility, or will be sold to the utility partner.

The Energy Sharing System will include energy exchange between buildings, shallow geo-exchange wells that store thermal energy for using it in the winter, as well as recovery of heat from the sewer lines.
