What Municipalities Need to Know About Net Zero Emissions Building Codes

Efficiency Canada has released a new guide for municipalities. Kevin will walk through what municipalities need to know about net zero emissions building codes, to prepare for the 2025 net zero emissions building code. Everyone is welcome, though this will be particularly powerful for municipal staff and elected officials. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of the tools and information you need to lead the implementation of net zero emissions building codes. Speakers: Kevin Lockhart, Efficient Buildings Lead, Efficiency Canada Facilitator: Allison Mostowich, Director of Engagement, Efficiency Canada

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.

DiscoverEE Webinars: Air Sealing De-Mystified: A Custom Calculator That Instantly Measures and Evaluates Energy Savings

Zoom

Every house needs to breathe, hence builders have to allow a certain amount of infiltration or even better provide a mechanical ventilation system that brings in fresh air. However, as the house gets older it becomes leakier. Listeners would be quite aware of the fact that the current methodology used to quantify energy losses associated with air leaks in a house is through HOT2000 only. The whole house is modelled with the software, then blower door tests are conducted and the results processed through HOT2000 to generate an Energuide report which also contains infiltration losses. And to evaluate energy savings from air sealing, they’ll have to conduct the modelling twice and this is time consuming and costly. Now, they’ll be happy to learn that a full Energuide audit will not be required anymore. Summerhill will be presenting this tool which is also available in an app. All they need to do is collect the blower door test data and some parameters from the house and input into the calculator. Results, specific to infiltration only, are instantaneously generated. With this tool, the process of guided air sealing becomes much easier and simpler. Utilities can consider this as a great tool for […]

HEC WORKSHOP | Decarbonizing long-haul trucking in Eastern Canada.

Zoom

The Chair in Energy Sector Management at HEC Montréal and CPCS are carrying out, in collaboration with the Government of Québec a technoeconomic study comparing Class 8 technologies to decarbonize long-haul trucking, with a focus on the Autoroute 20 and Highway 401 corridor between Québec City and Windsor. The workshop aims to explore and validate with experts from industry, government, academic and professional both the larger decarbonization context and the important parameters to consider in the analysis. The workshop aims to explore and validate with experts from industry, government, academic and professional both the larger decarbonization context and the important parameters to consider in the analysis. The key objective is two-fold: 1) validate data and assumptions that will be used in the simulations to compare the techno-economic potential of identified new-zero technologies for long-haul trucking. 2) highlight the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and risks associated with the different technologies in the context of Eastern Canada. The workshop consists of two parts: 1) a scoping conference on April 25 to lay out the context and state of longhaul trucking in Eastern Canada, followed by 2) round tables held on April 26 and 27 to discuss key issues both technical specific to the […]

EGP Speaker Series 2023: Deep Energy Retrofits

Zoom

Existing buildings have a key role in decarbonizing the built environment. As many of today’s buildings will still be occupied by global net-zero timelines, the transformation and reuse of these buildings is critical. Many existing buildings will need to become zero-carbon to help meet Canada’s 2030 carbon targets and its 2050 decarbonization goal.   Join us and learn more on how retrofitting existing buildings can help meet carbon reduction commitments, as speakers provide an introduction to deep energy retrofits and decarbonization, discuss expectations in operational and embodied carbon, industry codes and standards used in decision making, and funding programs available for deep energy retrofit projects.   This event is supported by the Canada Green Building Council (CAGBC).   Interested in learning more about the Emerging Green Professionals?

Producing More Renewable Energy Than Solar and Wind

Online

If the world is to reduce emissions from carbon energy sources, a major tactic will be to promote the production of dispatchable renewable energy from heat pumps. The industry needs to quantify its output in kilowatt-hours so the technology can be compared with other options and, ultimately, to be eligible for eligibility for production tax credits for thermal load.

Webinar: How clean energy makes life more affordable—and how to talk about it

You’re invited to join a webinar co-hosted by Clean Energy Canada, the Canadian Climate Institute, Efficiency Canada, and Re.Climate exploring how clean energy makes life more affordable—and how to share this message with Canadians. Speakers from each organization will provide a collective crash course on the latest research around clean energy and affordability, including how best to communicate it and how we can help bring everyone along. Canadians will spend less money on energy than they do today as we transition from fossil fuels to clean energy, but big challenges remain: the way energy will be consumed and paid for will change, and certain families may find the whole process difficult without help. In this webinar, speakers Trevor Melanson, Jana Elbrecht, Louise Comeau, Brendan Haley, and Sarah Miller will discuss new research on household-level affordability, electric vehicles, heat pumps, energy efficiency, and effective affordability-oriented communications. The presentation will be followed by a discussion in which attendees can put their questions to panelists. Join us at 11am PT/2pm ET on November 23 as some of Canada’s leading climate think tanks offer informed insight on the most politically salient issue of the year.
