Although Enwave Seattle’s steam system dates back to 1893, the system continues to modernize and add customers. The company started using urban waste wood to fuel its system in 2011 and is projecting it will cut its carbon footprint – and that of its customers – by 50 percent. 

Customers are eyeing the company’s moves and re-upping their long-term service contracts. Swedish Medical Center, the largest nonprofit healthcare provider in Greater Seattle, signed an agreement in 2013 to continue using Enwave Seattle’s steam service through 2033.

Enwave Seattle has renewed contracts with more than 40 downtown and First Hill customers since early 2012. It also has added eight new long-term customers – including Olive 8, Four Seasons Hotel Seattle and the Russell Investments Center – over the past six years. One of the newest customers: Copperworks Distilling Co., a craft distillery and tasting room that uses Enwave Seattle’s steam in its distilling process.
