A brief description of other sources of building heating not specified above:
The University of Ottawa employees heat capture technology in many of its buildings (especially buildings that have undergone deep energy retrofits). Heat from the metabolic activity of the machinery and people inside the buildings are recirculated to reduce heating from natural gas. This energy is expressed through the electricity used to operate these heat harvesting systems.
