New & Noteworthy

Extreme Arctic Climate “No Problem” For DESS

A geothermal-powered DESS is the choice of the Na-cho Nyak Dun First Nation, and the Governments of Canada and Yukon.

District Energy Sharing For Russia

DEC has signed a tri-party DESS agreement for the Southern Star project in the Krasnodar Region of southern Russia.

E2o – Web-Based Software Tools Plan Dess From ‘A’ To ‘Z’.

Now governments, utilities, developers and architects can fast-track the planning, costing, construction and operation of a DESS. The E2O software suite streamlines the process, making it easier, faster and more economical to integrate DESS into both new developments and retrofit/regeneration projects.
