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.
IDEA 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.
