Administrative history

The University of Toronto has a 100-year history with centralized steam delivery. Steam generated by four massive boilers fueled by natural gas (originally fueled by coal) is delivered to many buildings across campus for heating spaces and making hot water. Waste heat produced by a jet turbine cogeneration unit installed in 1993, is also used to heat boilers and produce steam. And, during summer, steam is used by absorption chillers in the Medical Sciences Building for refrigeration
