TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enwave Energy Corporation (Enwave) is working with Brookfield Properties (Brookfield) to build in sustainability at one of Toronto’s most prestigious downtown office complexes. The third and final tower of Bay Adelaide Centre a 32-storey high-rise tower set for completion by 2022, of which Scotiabank will be the lead tenant, will feature an innovative heating approach that economically captures and reuses residual heat to improve efficiency and add long-term value for tenants and investors.
Located in the heart of Toronto’s financial core, Brookfield’s existing Bay Adelaide Centre towers – which have achieved LEED Gold and Platinum core and shell certification and BOMA 360 designation – are currently connected to Enwave’s Deep Lake Water Cooling (DLWC) system. A sustainable alternative to air conditioning, this world-renowned district energy system draws renewable cold water from Lake Ontario to cool downtown buildings.
For the North Tower, Enwave will build and operate within the Bay Adelaide Centre complex, a hot water plant that generates heat from both natural gas and electrically powered heat pumps, enhancing resiliency and optimizing energy use. A supplemental heat pump will also capture residual heat from the DLWC system and reuse it to heat the building.
