National Western Center, a Denver, Colorado, 250-acre academic campus development of indoor and outdoor spaces designed to host innovation and research labs, farmers markets, international conferences, outdoor festivals and everything in between, is a 3.8 MW district energy project currently considered the largest wastewater heat recovery project in North America and potentially the world. The system will supply 90% of the campus heating and cooling needs and help National Western Center avoid emitting an estimated 2,600 metric tonnes of CO2 annually. This project is a marquee demonstration in the United States of the power of wastewater and provides example to the legitimacy of wastewater district energy projects for the purposes of low carbon heating and fresh water saving cooling.
