Green Building Breakfast Event (Existing Building Deep Retrofits)

We know that over 80 percent of Canada’s building stock today will be operational in 2030 and beyond. In order to reach a low carbon future, it will be essential to retrofit existing buildings. Retrofitting large commercial, institutional and high-rise residential buildings can reduce GHG emissions by up to 44 per cent - $6.2 billion in energy savings; but in order to do so, we need to accelerate a robust and innovative retrofit economy.

To help guide the industry, the CaGBC Ottawa Chapter is holding an Existing Buildings Breakfast on Oct 19th, 2017. This event will provide an opportunity to learn about exceptional deep retrofit projects; explore different approaches to optimizing building performance; and understand provincial and federal initiatives to drive the energy efficiency improvements for Canada’s existing buildings.
