Building Blatchford: A leading sustainable community in the heart of Edmonton

The City of Edmonton is transforming 536 acres of centrally located land into one of North America’s most sustainable communities. Blatchford’s vision is to be home to 30,000 Edmontonians living, working and learning in a neighbourhood that operates on 100 per cent renewable energy. The community also aims to be carbon neutral, significantly reduce its ecological footprint and empower residents to pursue a range of sustainable lifestyle choices.

Learn more about this innovative new community, its use of the key pillars of sustainable design and the development of a renewable energy utility that ensures energy resiliency and longevity.
