    I’m wondering if there is a way to make these facilities more aesthetically pleasing, and better integrated within the cityscape.

    If any more of these gas-fired generating stations are to be built in Toronto (or the GTA for that matter), I’d like to see an effort made to make them look less like a shuttle launch pad. They’re clean, safe and could very well be built alongside built-up areas.

    With that, I’d like to see a push for cogeneration (combined heat and power). All the condos to be built in the Portlands would be a perfect opportunity to receive district heating from what would otherwise be waste heat. That’s how you achieve maximum efficiency.

      I suggest you google “Spittelau incineration plant” (which is located in a suburb of Vienna.)
