Integrated Resource Recovery Case Study: Revelstoke Community Energy System


Revelstoke community energy system (360p)

The City of Revelstoke, British Columbia, is home to the first wood‐residue fired Community Energy System (CES) in British Columbia.

Constructed in 2005, the system uses wood waste from the Downie Timber Mill in Revelstoke to fire a biomass boiler. The boiler provides heat to much of the downtown core through a district hot oil loop.

The community benefits from increased job security, improved air quality, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and lower energy costs for customers.
