John Godfree/Craig Golding
Session 2 (2:30 until 2:50)
Justifying Emissions with Energy Efficient CHP Plants
Combined Heat and Power plants are justified by lowered energy consumption and the subsequent reduction in operating costs. How will these plants comply with the impending GHG cap and trade legislation? Will this be the end for CHP plants in Ontario? Learn the basics of CHP plants and what the future could hold in the Cap and Trade environment.

Session 3 (2:50 until 3:10)
Benchmarking and Optimization Opportunities Through Existing Building Commissioning
The opportunity to implement smart building technology is playing a significant role in the implementation of Facility Improvement Measures for existing building commissioning. Data analytics are being applied which connect the financial model of a particular measure with real time resource consumption. This session will provide an overview of techniques applied during the EBCx process which support building reporting & benchmarking.
