The Climate Retrofit Mission

Exploring the scale of building retrofits required to confront the climate emergency and how a mission oriented innovation policy approach can help us achieve the take-off required.

Energy Foundations Report

On April 15th, Indigenous Clean Energy Social Enterprise (ICE), an organization advancing the clean energy leadership First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people across Canada, announced the release of Energy Foundations, a detailed national report on energy efficiency and housing in Indigenous communities.
Our speakers will share the results from this ground-breaking analysis of the diverse and substantive social, economic, and environmental impacts that can be realized through investment in Indigenous energy efficient housing infrastructure.

Reframing the Policy Discussion on Geothermal Heat Pump Systems: New Considerations

A recent study by Dunsky Energy Consulting highlights the unique benefits of ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems to the long-term development and management of a sustainable electricity grid. The study shows that the societal benefits go well beyond the known benefits of GSHPs to reducing energy use and carbon emissions. The implications for system planning are substantial and warrant closer consideration by policy-makers. This session will summarize the study’s findings and will include some discussion of key policy tools that can aid in making those benefits a reality, based on a survey of other jurisdictions.
