A Roadmap for Large Building Retrofits in Canada

DURATION: 1 hour

This course will discuss a new report released recently that delivers a detailed roadmap for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from large buildings like office towers, recreation centres, hospitals, arenas and schools across the country. CaGBC’s A Roadmap for Retrofits in Canada demonstrates the critical role that existing buildings play in realizing Canada’s low carbon future.

As part of this course, participants will learn about how large buildings can contribute to achieving a reduction in GHG emissions of at least 30 percent, with the potential to reach 51 percent by 2030. The instructor will also discuss what way the type, size, and age of large buildings, along with energy sources and the carbon intensity of regional electrical grids in Canada, can affect energy efficiency and carbon emissions. Finally, participants will get to hear about provincially-specific retrofit pathways that include a combination of recommissioning, deep retrofits, renewable energy, and fuel switching actions.

This course is delivered by Akua Schatz, Director of Advocacy and Development at the CaGBC and Eric Chisolm of WSP.
