Design Charrette: Building Energy Enhancement Service (BEES) Project 
Our 2017-2018 Project

This project is designed to catalyze comprehensive energy retrofits by working with 5 building owners to complete energy audits, explore how to make the retrofit financially viable, and support in the implementation of the retrofits. The project will also support the retrofit economy through the creation of an Existing Building Task Force managed by the CaGBC Ottawa Chapter. For more information or to participate contact kbouffard@cagbc.org  

Time: 10am-2pm
Location: 18 Byward Market Square

Demystifying Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)  
Zero Carbon buildings require renewable energy, however the reality is that sometimes our buildings are not located in the best locations to generate energy themselves.  Situations like this will require off-site renewable energy.  Markets for Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) have emerged quickly around the world.  Environmental standards have also been put in place to ensure that these markets continue to drive investment and growth in renewable energy.  Join us for presentations from industry specialists and a panel discussion as we attempt to demystify the off-site renewable energy market and provide you with the information you need to be an eco-conscious energy consumer.
