Lake Ontario is helping keep Toronto cool.

Deep lake water cooling uses cold lake water to cool downtown buildings.

CARLYLE COUTINHO (President and Chief Operating Officer, Enwave Canada): My name is Carlyle Coutinho, and I’m the president and chief operating officer for the Canadian division of Enwave. Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Fund is investing $10 million in Enwave’s deep lake water cooling facility. Enwave plans to use this funding to expand our deep lake water cooling facility and our capacity in the city of Toronto. What that allows for is the greater displacement of electricity use—therefore reducing carbon—displacement of water use, and just general conservation. And we want to take our solutions that might be at scale corporately or in a large downtown sector and be able to apply it to smaller areas like a residential 400-unit-residential-homes district and scale it across North America and the world. So it allows for a made-in-Canada solution that we can push out across the world.

A climate-friendly project from Low Carbon Economy Fund.
