The Green Municipal Fund’s Community Efficiency Financing initiative funds financing programs for local low-rise residential retrofit programs. The initiative is mid-way through its funding envelope and taking stock of lessons learned and successful program models.
In addition, CEF is thinking beyond its funding envelope towards the ultimate goal of market transformation. This presentation shares early signs of market transformation and explores what market transformation will look like for community efficiency financing in the years to come.
Join this session to learn more about CEF, local efficiency financing models, and to explore the path toward market transformation.
In this presentation, Efficiency Canada research manager James Gaede will provide an overview of his recent research on industrial energy management programs and policy in Canada. Taking a “policy system” perspective, James will review the challenges and opportunities of industrial energy management and its potential to contribute to Canadian climate change goals. He will conclude by outlining the features of a policy system for continuous improvement in industrial energy use.
Targets have been laid out for the construction industry – get new buildings to Net Zero by the early 2030’s. Not long afterwards, we’ll do the same to existing buildings in Canada. But how are we going to achieve that? What are the practical hurdles that the construction
industry faces? Many builders and renovators are asking the question, “Is this even possible?”. Join NAIMA Canada’s Andy Cockburn and Gary Sharp as they break down the hands-on aspects of deep energy retrofits and bringing existing buildings (close) to Net Zero.
Low Rise residential makes up 70% of what Vancouver builds annually (in terms of heated floor area), this presentation will talk about Vancouver’s journey towards renewable energy used for space heating and hot water in new construction. The presentation will also talk about early efforts on existing low rise residential. The presentation focuses on buildings that (mostly) fit into Part 9 residential part of the building code.
Everything you need to understand tiered codes, the advantages of adopting an ambitious tier, and how municipalities can use the new codes to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
