Just about every office or institutional space in North America requires power, heat and hot water. Think of an airport, or an industrial facility, a hospital or school. Think of Winnipeg in winter. Think of Houston in summer. That’s an awful lot of energy.

Heating and cooling for buildings contributes 31% of greenhouse gas emissions globally. In the province of Ontario, alone, building heat is the second largest source of GHGs.

Enbridge is committed to the energy transition—and a first-of-its-kind in North America pilot project at our gas utility’s Technology Operations Centre (TOC) in Markham, ON is yet another initiative propelling us forward.

Enbridge Gas Inc. announced today that it’s working with 2G Energy and CEM Engineering to install a combined heat and power (CHP) system that can use emissions-free hydrogen to heat and power the TOC. The 120,000-square-foot facility in Markham is home to approximately 197 Enbridge employees.

2G Energy will provide the CHP system later this year. It will be able to operate with a minimum blend of 25% hydrogen to 75% natural gas, and up to 100% pure hydrogen.
