About the Loan

Vancity Community Investment Bank (VCIB) provided Noventa Energy Partners with a $15.3M senior secured loan to finance the construction and operation of the world’s largest wastewater energy transfer project, located at Toronto Western Hospital. The $39.6M project has secured funding from both the public and private sectors, including a $19.3 million loan from the Canada Infrastructure Bank and $3.3M grant from the Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Fund.

About the Impact

As a values-based bank, VCIB is committed to accelerate Canada’s transition towards a net-zero economy. Over the next 30 years, Noventa’s wastewater energy transfer technology will produce enough thermal energy to supply 90% of the hospital’s heating and cooling needs and will reduce its carbon emissions by a quarter of a million tonnes. This is one of the first projects of this scale to use raw municipal wastewater from a sewer to provide low carbon heating and cooling to a building, which serves as a testament to the impact reimagining energy can have in supporting a sustainable tomorrow.
