The city of Seattle has been talking about trying to build a district energy system for years. This summer, it will pick three to five neighborhoods where one could become a reality.
Last December, Seattle hired a consultant team led by Affiliated Engineers NW of Seattle, and Denmark's Cowi to do a pre-feasibility study for such a system. The team is analyzing nine Seattle neighborhoods: Northgate, University of Washington, Interbay, Mount Baker, Capitol Hill near the light rail station, Yesler Terrace/First Hill, Pioneer Square, Seattle Center and South Lake Union.
