Deep Lake Water Cooling uses 90% less electricity than conventional cooling
Toronto, ON – Enwave Energy Corporation, one of the largest providers of district energy in North America, today announced that it will provide the highly anticipated Trump International Hotel & Tower, currently under development in Toronto, with clean, reliable, sustainable, low cost air conditioning to keep its residents and guests cool with Enwave’s innovative Deep Lake Water Cooling system.
Enwave sources power from the icy cold water found deep within Lake Ontario. The lake water runs through the City’s filtration system to Enwave’s facilities where the energy is extracted from the icy water. It is this energy that is used to cool the buildings.
“We are very excited to have been selected by the Trump development team to provide air conditioning to this world class building,” said Dennis Fotinos, President & Chief Executive Officer, Enwave Energy Corporation. “With rising energy costs, and unnerving climate changes, consumers, businesses and the government alike are taking a much more proactive approach to finding a solution to these issues in an effort to create a better future for everyone,” said Fotinos. “We believe that we are a part of the solution. Enwave’s Deep Lake Water Cooling, a sustainable energy source, will without a doubt contribute to significantly reducing harmful gas emissions and electricity usage while providing a reliable, low cost energy source.”
The 750,000 square foot, 70 floor tower boasting luxurious living and hospitality will help reduce harmful emissions by 3,224 tons which is the equivalent to taking more than 645 cars off the road, and will help decrease electricity usage by 2,931,000KWh which is comparable to electricity used by more than 290 homes.
“Like the decision to build a Trump International Hotel and Tower in Toronto, using Enwave’s Deep Lake Water Cooling system for the tower’s air conditioning needs makes good business sense,” said Val Levitan, President and Chief Executive Officer, Talon International Development Inc. “In today’s society, sustainable energy is an effective selling feature and contributes to our objective to create a world class condominium residence and hotel from inside out.”
Enwave launched its Deep Lake Water Cooling initiative in August 2004. There are currently 12 buildings receiving Deep Lake Water Cooling, and 34 additional buildings to be connected by 2009.
