Event Description:








Join the BIA and Vicinity Energy to learn more about district energy and why it’s the new disruptor in a decarbonizing world.

As the largest district energy provider in North America, Vicinity’s district energy business in Philadelphia has been operating in the city for decades, providing low-carbon energy for scores of buildings in Center City, while also lowering Philly’s carbon footprint by nearly 300,000 tons annually—the equivalent of removing 65,000 cars from the roads every year.

The district energy system in Philadelphia is comprised of steam, hot and chilled water, and electricity production plants, including cogeneration – a highly efficient and sustainable form of energy production pioneered by Thomas Edison.

Learn more about district energy, our net-zero 2050 vision and recent greening milestones, and how district energy electrification is the next energy inflection point. 

Sign up now for a tour of the plant, followed by a networking reception.
