Detroit's Comprehensive Renewable Energy System

Detroit Renewable Energy (DRE) is Detroit’s comprehensive, integrated renewable energy company. We transform the city’s municipal solid waste into “green” electricity and steam for district energy, proudly serving large corporations, hospitals, government buildings, small businesses and leading nonprofit organizations. We are a trusted employer to hundreds of families and provide safe, reliable, and cost-effective energy to our customers. Detroit Renewable Energy has invested over $120 million in Detroit over the past five years to improve the performance, reliability, and safety of Detroit Thermal, the city's steam distribution loop, and Detroit Renewable Power, the city's energy-from-waste facility.

We are making Detroit’s power and waste infrastructure cleaner and greener for the 21st century. As such, Detroit Renewable Energy is an essential part of our city’s ongoing renaissance.
