Guided tour of the Southeast False Creek Neighborhood Utility Facility. Please read full description for more information.

The Southeast False Creek Neighborhood Energy Utility uses waste thermal energy captured from sewage to provide space heating and hot water to buildings in Southeast False Creek. This recycled energy eliminates more than 60% of the greenhouse gas pollution associated with heating buildings. The utility began operations in 2010 and since then has rapidly expanded to serve 395,000 m2 (4,300,000 ft2) of residential, commercial, and institutional space. Over time, the utility will be expanded to serve new developments in the neighbourhood and Great Northern Way campus lands.
