Delegation - District Energy System

Ron Monk, M.Eng., P.Eng of Kerr Wood Leidel Consulting Engineers, Dr. Jamie Stephen, PHD - Torchlight Bioresources and representatives from West Fraser were in attendance, as Ron presented Council with the Analysis of District Energy for the City of Quesnel.  In Phase 1, the project would use waste heat from Cariboo Pulp and Paper to provide heat to Downtown and North Quesnel.  Natural gas use would be displaced reducing greenhouse gas emissions and local air pollutants and keeping money in the community/region.

This first phase of the feasibility study determined that this project is technically feasible.  

Further phases of the feasibility study will see outreach to potential customers, define the business model and refine the cost estimates.

Pending successful project development and approval from the stakeholders, the final phase will be to source the capital funds, with a focus on grant funding.
