The Path to Lower Carbon Buildings
BCA - The Building Commissioning Association,
BOMA Toronto - Building Owners and Managers Association of The Greater Toronto Area
presents Seminar encompassing five different presentations regarding Low Carbon Buildings followed by Discussion and Questions session.
The building industry has recently seen a series of efforts in pursuit of low carbon buildings. The recognition of the link between green house gas emissions and the use of fossil fuels in buildings suggests the industry should work towards a carbon free future. This seminar will look at various aspects of building design and operation that will lead to lower carbon buildings.
1. Heat Recovery in Commercial Buildings
Using recovered heat in place fossil fuel based systems. The drive to reduce the use of fossil fuels in commercial buildings will force the consideration of the alternative means of providing building heating. The energy crisis of the 70’s lead to the use of recovered heat for building heating with mixed results. This presentation will take a second look at heat recovery and the potential for displacing fossil fuel consumption.
Speaker: Mike Loughry, HH Angus
2. Multi-residential GAHP Retrofit Case Study
The Atmospheric Fund will share their experience with a gas absorption heat pump retrofit in a multi-residential setting. The presentation will provide an overview of the project and will discuss design, operational performance, and lessons learned.
Speaker: Keith Burrows, The Atmospheric Fund (TAF)
3. Overview of Reporting of Energy Consumption and Water Use Regulation
The Ministry will provide an overview of Ontario Regulation 506/18, Reporting of Energy Consumption and Water Use, touching on which properties must report, by when, and who does what. The value of building benchmarking and reporting will be discussed, including uses for building benchmarking data and savings achieved in other jurisdictions with reporting requirements. The session will conclude on plans for Year 2 implementation, including mapped locations of properties expected to report, as well as communications and outreach efforts by the Ministry and how seminar participants can complement the Ministry’s outreach.
Speaker: Linda Poirier, Ministry of Energy
4. Selling Energy Conservation: Business Case Prioritization to Improve Everyone’s Bottom Line
Mike Mulqueen will provide an overview of available electricity incentive programs and smart energy conservation strategies that can deliver long-term cost savings. The presentation will share insights from energy sales professionals through a series of case studies that illustrate customer journeys and success stories in leveraging available incentives for planned and unplanned capital upgrades. The key learnings will be increased incentive program knowledge and deeper insight into how to successfully sell energy efficiency to decision makers by effectively communicating nonenergy benefits, understanding customer business models and budgeting processes and strengthening supply chain relationships.
Speaker: Mike Mulqueen, Toronto Hydro
5. CaGBC’s Zero Carbon Building Standard
To meet Canada’s GHG reduction targets, bold new approaches are required to drive innovation. For its part, the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) has created a new zero carbon standard for assessing the carbon performance of commercial, institutional, and multi-family buildings in Canada. The CaGBC Zero Carbon Building Standard is a unique, made-in-Canada solution to achieving our climate change commitments, providing a path for both new and existing buildings to reach zero carbon.
Speaker: Jeff Ranson, CaGBC

The Future of Smart Grid
This introduction to Standard 201 will define an abstract, object-oriented information model to enable appliances and control systems to manage electrical loads and generation sources to communicate information about these electrical loads to the utilities and other electrical service providers. The determined model will allow “smart grid” interaction between electrical loads and electrical generation facilities
