CaGBC – Accelerating to Zero: Building Solutions for a Low Carbon Economy

March 28, 2019
Evergreen Brick Works - Future Cities Center 550 Bayview Ave Toronto, ON M4W 3X8

The aim of Accelerating to Zero is to educate, inform and inspire leaders in the green building industry and help them leverage new opportunities presented by a low carbon economy. This full-day event is expected to attract architects, engineers, building owners, property developers, trade unions, utilities, technologists and representatives from every level of governments. Program highlights include:

• The release of CaGBC’s “Zero Carbon Buildings Costing Study,” which outlines the business case for zero carbon in different building types across six Canadian cities (Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver). The report provides an understanding of the financial implications of pursuing carbon-neutral buildings.

• A panel on “Regulating Zero” that will feature government and industry representatives discussing the policies, programs and ideas that encourage zero carbon development in local areas.

• Information sessions on how to reduce Thermal Energy Demand Intensity (TEDI) and the need to rethink HVAC systems and adopt low grade heat pumps or low carbon district energy systems.

The day will conclude with a networking event from 4:30 – 6:00 P.M. to meet fellow attendees and regional stakeholders.
