High Performance Buildings Panel

February 26, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

A conversation presented by the Board of Change

Granite countertops? Pfft, so 10 minutes ago. The “must-have” features of a new home in 2018 deliver thermal comfort, durability, better indoor air quality, and a smaller carbon footprint. Thankfully, a raft of energy efficiency performance standards are unlocking all of the above benefits and more. Thanks to the new BC Energy Step Code, the North Shore will soon be an “efficient new home zone” stretching all the way from Deep Cove to Horseshoe Bay. Meanwhile, interest in the über-efficient Passive House standard is exploding. And in keeping with its commitment that all new buildings will produce zero operational greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, the City of Vancouver is full speed ahead with its Zero Emissions Building Plan.

Join the Board of Change for an engaging and inspiring evening of learning about the policies and programs that are helping to transform the province’s built environment, yielding buildings that consume up to 80 percent less energy than the average home.

Featuring:
Robyn Wark, Team Lead, Sustainable Communities, BC Hydro
Sean Pander, Green Building Manager, City of Vancouver
Sandra Rohler, Certified Passive House Designer, Rohler Passive House Design

Moderated by:
James Glave, Principal, Glave Communications
