Event description

Sustainable Intelligent Buildings are integral to the future of the built environment, supporting energy savings, carbon reduction, improved occupant health and well-being. In the longer term, intelligent buildings can also help building owners gather benchmarking data that may be required by some provincial bodies.

This course defines the concept of the Sustainable Intelligent Buildings and covers the Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology that enables a building to be intelligent and sustainable at the same time. Direct Current (DC) powered buildings support greater controls and functionality through PoE and various resilient design practices. The course will explore some of the advantages of intelligent buildings, as well as the level of customization that is available with both current and emerging technologies. An overview of industry leading connectivity solutions and practical applications of this technology will be demonstrated through case studies.

Participants will also garner information on how PoE projects and digital building initiatives contribute to sustainability goals and green building certifications.

This course will be delivered by Brian Ensign, Vice President of Marketing, of Superior Essex.

About CaGBC

The Canada Green Building Council is a not-for-profit, national organization that has been working since 2002 to advance green building and sustainable community development practices in Canada. The CaGBC is the licence holder for the LEED green building rating system in Canada and supports the WELL Building Standard and GRESB (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) in Canada.

Together with our membership of over 1,200 industry organizations and more than 2,500 individual Chapter members involved in designing, building and operating buildings, homes and communities, the Council has made excellent inroads toward achieving our mission of reducing the environmental impact of the built environment.

Acting as the voice of the green building industry, the CaGBC advocates for green building policies with all levels of governments and the private sector across Canada. The Council has also educated over 45,000 green professionals to answer the demand for knowledge and jobs this new green marketplace created. As a result of this advocacy, education and the hard work of our members, thousands of commercial and government buildings, schools, homes, community centres and historical structures have been retrofitted or newly constructed to green building standards.
