What’s Up Down Under?

What’s Up Down Under?

Earlier this month, Corey Diamond sat down with Luke Menzel on his popular podcast, First Fuel, to give an overview of the Canadian policy landscape. Now, he’ll return the favour. Come learn about the Energy Efficiency Council, what’s driving energy efficiency action in Australia, and where we can support each other to drive international energy efficiency targets.

Scaling High Rise Retrofits: Lessons Learned from North America’s Largest Passive House Retrofit

Scaling High Rise Retrofits: Lessons Learned from North America’s Largest Passive House Retrofit

Toronto based architects and high-rise retrofit experts Graeme Stewart and Ya’el Santopinto share new learnings about deep energy retrofits in large multi-unit residential buildings. The presentation will start with sharing a case study of one of their recent projects: North America’s largest Passive House retrofit, The Ken Soble Tower and will end with a discussion on systems-scale innovations that are needed to catalyze these kinds of projects nation-wide.

An overview of the Certified Energy Manager (CEM) program and its impact

In this session, we will provide an overview of the CEM program, including some of the course components and highlights.
We will also explain how the rise in CEM participation and certification also coincides with Energy Management growing as a key still for organizations at the commercial, institutional, and industrial level.

Results of Canada’s First Energy Efficiency Auction

Results of Canada’s First Energy Efficiency Auction

Hear about Ontario’s first-ever energy efficiency auction that is testing ways to increase energy efficiency’s contribution to grid reliability and support consumers in designing solutions that best fit their needs.
By adopting efficient equipment or shifting existing processes to address seasonal peak hours, this pilot will enable more organizations to make a quantifiable contribution to reducing peak demands on the electricity system.
The auction attracted interest from a wide range of organizations proposing a gamut of technologies from thermal storage to lighting retrofits to machinery upgrades.

Efficiency Canada’s Codes4Climate: A Building Code Advocates Toolkit

Efficiency Canada’s Codes4Climate: A Building Code Advocates Toolkit

The places we live, work, play, and gather are a critical piece of Canada’s transition to a net zero economy. This points to a new role for building energy codes that is exemplified in Canada’s proposed 2020 national model codes.
To help accelerate the adoption of these advanced building energy codes, Efficiency Canada has developed Codes4Climate: A Building Code Advocacy Toolkit for those interested in reducing energy use and emissions in the buildings sector including municipalities, energy code advocates, policymakers, and builders.
