Vicinity Energy helps create carbon-neutral buildings in Fenway
New England Council member, Vicinity Energy, announced a partnership with IQHQ Inc., a life sciences real estate development company, which will bring Vicinity’s carbon-free, renewable thermal energy to IQHQ’s developments in the Fenway neighborhood.
Vicinity Energy in Boston has always had a mission to decarbonize communities, from buildings to college campuses to entire neighborhoods. Now, with this partnership, the company is bringing this technology to Fenway. The first stop for this heating technology will be IQHQ’s development at 109 Brookline Ave., which is set to be Boston’s first entirely carbon-neutral building. To achieve these goals, Vicinity has been developing a technology referred to as “eSteam,” an energy that uses decarbonized operators and does not require onsite boilers or chillers. Vicinity says they plan to start delivering eSteam in 2024.
“This eSteam partnership not only signifies our commitment to a clean energy future, but it also demonstrates the commitment from progressive, innovative industry leaders, like IQHQ, who are committed to lower carbon emissions and to combat climate change,” said Bill DiCroce, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vicinity Energy
The New England Council commends both Vicinity Energy and IQHQ Inc. for their commitment to energy stability.
