New Campus Energy Centre Improves Energy Efficiency, Reduces Emissions

In 2015, UBC Energy and Water Services began operation of the new 45 megawatt Campus Energy Centre, the primary thermal energy source for UBC’s new hot water district energy system.

The new hot water district energy system replaced the campus’ 90 year old steam system and improves energy efficiency by over 24 per cent through high-efficiency boilers and heat recovery.

When combined with the new hot water district energy system the Campus Energy Centre reduces the Vancouver campus’ carbon emissions by 22 per cent.
