Canada’s federal Climate Plan aims to exceed Canada’s 2030 emissions reduction target and achieve a net-zero emissions economy by 2050. There will be many pathways to get to this goal. One pathway is the decarbonization of our energy systems. Creative Energy is collaborating with BC Hydro in an effort to decarbonize their energy plant at 720 Beatty Street in downtown Vancouver by adding new electrode steam boilers to the existing natural gas-powered steam plant. HH Angus has been engaged to provide mechanical and electrical engineering services to support this important conversion.
According to Creative Energy, the new system would have enough capacity to serve approximately 12 million square feet of new development, enough to serve over 10 years of growth in low-carbon buildings in the downtown region and avoid 38,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases each year.
With a dedicated Energy Division that brings extensive experience with energy systems for the built environment, including low carbon energy and renewable/sustainable systems, we’re excited to be part of this important project that contributes to building a low carbon energy future.
