Showcasing Industry Growth Around the World

More than 109,087,059 square feet of growth was reported in 2017.

Summary

The publication of District Energy Space has become an annual tradition for the International District Energy Association since 1990. Compilations beyond North America were initiated in 2004.

Each year, IDEA asks all of its member systems to provide information on buildings that committed or recommitted to district energy service during the previous calendar year. To qualify for consideration in District Energy Space, a renewal must be a contracted building or space that had been scheduled to expire during the calendar year and was renewed under a contract with a duration of 10 years or more.  Year-to-year rollover--simple continuation of service to existing buildings is not considered renewal.

During the IDEA 109th Annual Conference in Vancouver, BC, June 11-14, 2018, IDEA recognized and presented awards to those systems reporting the largest total area added (sq ft) and the greatest number of total buildings for 2017 for both North America and Beyond North America.

Growth in 2017

North America

Our members reported that they committed or recommitted 190 customer buildings in North America totaling 50,028,785 square feet (sq ft) of building space to district energy service during 2017, or were previously unreported. That compares with 350 buildings and 57,810,954 sq ft during 2016.

The North America total of 50,028,785 sq ft added in 2017 to IDEA’s running total of square footage of 751,664,024 sq ft committed to North American district energy systems since 1990, brings the current total for North America reported since 1990 to 801,692,809 sq ft.

Beyond North America

IDEA is also pleased to be able to report strong system growth from beyond North America, which we have tracked since 2004. An additional 243 buildings and 59,058,273 sq ft were reported for 2017. That compares with 425 buildings and 105,331,989 sq ft during 2016.

The Beyond North America total of 59,058,273 sq ft added in 2017 to IDEA’s running total of square footage of 1,366,513,294 Beyond North America since 2004, brings the Beyond North America total reported since 2004 to 1,425,571,567 sq ft.

Totals: North America and Beyond North America

The combined building area reported added during 2017 in North America and Beyond North America is 108,318,059 sq ft. The total building area added, as reported to District Energy Space by our members since our tally began is 109,087,059 + 2,118,177,318 = 2,227,264,377 sq feet.
