Vancouver retrofits Aermec heat pumps as part of green initiative

LATEST NEWS

When Vancouver’s City Hall in British Columbia committed to upgrading its city run facilities, Aermec’s air NRP source heat recovery units were selected as the winning energy efficient solution.

Aermec North America managed the project  for the city, who’s overall goal was to reduce carbon emissions by 33% below the 2007 levels by 2020. The City specified the installetion of Aermec’s NRP air source heat recovery unit to get the initiative underway.

The NRP heat pump initiative was designed to showcase the city’s commitment to installing more energy efficient solutions. It was calculated that by the end of 2019 the heat pump would make a significant contribution by reducing greenhouse gases by as much as 34% annually with a projected cost saving of $20,000 per annum.

The initiative has gained traction in other sectors with the private sector investing in more greener operations and upgrading equipment to improve the performance of their buildings, reduce carbon emissions and save on energy costs.

A full case study is available here. For more information on the City of Vancouver’s approach to cutting carbon and maximizing energy efficiencies please visit http://vancouver.ca/green-vancouver/how-we-are-greening-city-operations.aspx
