Renewable energy options for buildings

Renewable energy sources for buildings typically provide heating and cooling or electricity.

There are a variety of energy sources you can choose from:

  • Electrical energy can be created by both large and small hydro projects, solar panels, and wind.
  • Space heat can be created with biomethane, heat pumps, baseboard heating using renewable electricity, or renewable waste streams such as biomethane, recycled wood, and sewer heat.
  • Heating and cooling can be created with geoexchange systems.
