IDEA 2018 Operational System Survey

What is the Operational System Survey?

The district energy industry in North America continues to see growth in installed capacity as well as the number of systems currently operating. The 2018 Operational System Survey helps IDEA in our efforts to educate important stakeholders in government, industry, and communities and advance the district energy industry in North America. The survey results will provide empirical evidence of recent growth of the district energy industry in North America, employment trends within the industry, environmental benefits, and several other important data points.

Using the Results of the 2018 Operational System Survey

We understand that the information collected in the Operational System Survey may be sensitive and therefore the data will only be shared in the aggregate and all responses will be treated as anonymous. IDEA will never share or disclose individual system information.

Resource_2_img.pngIDEA collects and compiles the survey responses in order to:

- Support advocacy to national, regional and local governments
- Highlight best practices within the district energy industry
- Promote the numerous benefits of district energy
- Create an interactive map to show the geographic dispersion of district energy systems in North America

The data collected from the survey will be synthesized and summarized to create a final report which will be shared with all survey respondents.
