NEW! Save on Energy First Nations Community Building Retrofit Program

Ontario’s Independent Electricity System Operator has launched the new Save on Energy First Nations Community Building Retrofit Program, which is open to all on-reserve First Nations communities connected to Ontario’s electricity grid. It provides up to $100,000 in funding, as well as technical support, to communities to improve the energy efficiency of band-owned facilities and manage their electricity use more effectively. A variety of energy efficiency measures are available.

Buildings decarbonization “must be based on a holistic analysis”

ASHRAE has issued a position document on building decarbonization and its role on “mitigating the negative carbon impact of buildings on the environment”. The decarbonization of buildings and its systems must be based on a holistic analysis, says ASHRAE, which includes healthy, safe, and comfortable environments, energy efficiency, environmental impacts, sustainability, operational security and economics. And they’ve got some ideas as to how we do this.

Edmonton Airport turns to CHP for electricity & heating redundancy

“We need a guarantee of power to our airfield and to our building,” explained Steve Maybee, vice-president, Operations & Infrastructure, with Edmonton International. “So finding ways to produce that power in a sustainable way was always something that we were looking for. It all came together at the right time and [...] we made that decision, with the right business case to move it forward.” The airport proceeded with a combined heat & power solution which, besides providing electricity redundancy, would also provide heating redundancy for EIA’s hot water system. » Learn more

Enabling EV-ready buildings at Electric Mobility Canada’s EV/VÉ

With Canada’s move toward a fully electrified transport system, owners and managers should take the time to learn about building requirements that involve their properties and electric vehicle charging technologies. Electric Mobility Canada’s signature electric vehicle event—EV/VÉ—is taking place in-person in Toronto next month. Among the sessions you will find “Enabling EV-ready buildings” and “Advancing public charging”. » Learn more

Canada’s first commercial rebate for gas absorption heat pumps

FortisBC says it is introducing the first commercial prescriptive rebate offer in Canada for “innovative gas absorption heat pumps [GAHPs], helping building owners adopt this next generation of high-efficiency technology”. Tested in BC, these GAHPs reduced energy use by up to 35% and have the potential to halve GHG emissions, says FortisBC, adding these units will meet BC’s commitment to have all new space and water heating equipment sold in the province be at least 100% efficient by 2030. » How do they work?
