One of the communities AEA is working with on the district heating project is Fort Providence. An area in the centre of Fort Providence was identified for the demonstration pilot phase of this project.

An early and critical step in this, and any district heating project, is to accurately assess the heat load (total heat usage over a period of time of all the buildings in the pilot project area). This information is used to determine what the heating capacity (size) of the district heating boiler will need to be, in order to provide heat and hot water to the buildings in the demonstration pilot area. AEA staff are currently gathering heating data from the last 2 years of the buildings in this area of Fort Providence and did a community visit to Fort Providence the week of January 7th.
