Exciting news at Durham College

Exciting news at Durham College. They celebrated the completion of its geothermal field and the grand opening of its Energy Innovation Centre (EIC) in October 2019. This geothermal system provides clean, sustainable heating and cooling to the college's Gordon Willey building. This project is part of the ongoing transformation of Durham's energy infrastructure to support and implement sustainably focused initiatives on campus. The EIC facility is organized in an exhibit-like way so that visitors can learn more about geothermal through signage and interactive touch screen monitors, system diagrams, and performance metrics.
