Right here, right now, in the heart of Edmonton, we’re changing the game. Blatchford Renewable Energy is providing heating, cooling and hot water services to homes, businesses and schools in the Blatchford community. Our neighbourhood District Energy Sharing System uses geothermal, solar and other sustainable energy sources to provide reliable and affordable services to our customers.

Blatchford has an ambitious and exciting vision to be a 100% renewable, carbon-neutral community. And Blatchford Renewable Energy plays a major role in helping to achieve that vision. Our environmentally responsible utilities are critical to make Blatchford a carbon-neutral community—and to inspire cities around the world to follow our lead.

The Blatchford neighbourhood will be home to up to 30,000 Edmontonians living, working and learning in a sustainable community that uses 100% renewable energy, is carbon neutral, significantly reduces its ecological footprint, and empowers residents to pursue a range of sustainable lifestyle choices.

Blatchford will be made up of 2 primarily residential spaces on the east and west side of the site, a town centre, a large central park, plenty of additional green space and a civic plaza.

Urban design principles are integrated into the neighbourhood to create a ‘people-first’ community that fosters sustainable lifestyle choices. In order to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a new public, city-owned utility has been created to own and operate a District Energy Sharing System that will provide environmentally-friendly heating, cooling and hot water to the buildings and homes.

Achieving our vision will not only benefit Blatchford’s future generations of residents, but will also demonstrate Alberta’s leadership in sustainable community design and will inspire others to follow in our path.
