District Energy System

District Energy System

2015 represented the final year of the Building Optimization Program, a three-year program
developed in partnership with UBC and FortisBC to implement energy conservation measures in five
legacy academic facilities across campus.

In 2015, the Building Optimization Program saved the campus more than $150,000 in cumulative
annual utility costs in a 0.7 year payback period – the equivalent of a 140 per cent return on investment.
