The Well is built, quite literally, on a foundation of sustainability. The Well’s development team joined forces with Enwave Energy Corporation (Enwave) to extend the existing Deep Lake Water Cooling and hot water distribution networks by building a new energy storage facility housed at The Well. This joint undertaking enables westward expansion of Enwave’s systems, giving both The Well and surrounding communities access to sustainable cooling and heating solutions.
In 2020, Enwave constructed a large Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system as part of The Well development in Toronto, which is one of the largest construction projects in Canada including a commercial/retail podium, six residential towers, and one commercial tower totaling more than 3.0M sq.ft . of above grade space. The Well TES is a dual purpose buried thermal storage system constructed for use in the Enwave chilled water (CHW) and hot water (HW) systems. The system is designed to leverage off peak thermal energy in the form of CHW and HW and store it for use during peak times.
