The CaGBC is launching new training to support the green building industry in meeting upcoming requirements like those in Ontario, where the reporting of annual benchmarking results for large commercial buildings will soon become mandatory. Other jurisdictions including the City of Vancouver and the Province of Manitoba are also considering similar legislation.
Worried you'll be out of the loop? Canada's green building education experts at CaGBC have got you covered with two new courses that will help get you started.
Courses were modeled after the successful training that was implemented
in support of the City of Chicago's Energy Benchmarking Ordinance.
These courses will introduce the general processes for accurate data collection, show participants how to create a building profile in ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager, and discuss Ontario's upcoming EWRB regulation. This two-part course offering can be taken separately or together, with courses available as Webinars or as classroom sessions.
Part 1: Introduction to Energy Benchmarking
This introductory course is intended for those interested in learning more about energy benchmarking in Canada.
Part 2: Understanding Ontario’s Mandatory Energy Benchmarking for Large Buildings
This course will be available within 30 days of the EWRB regulation enactment and is intended for those interested in learning more about Ontario’s new EWRB regulation.
