Planning and Delivering Deep Energy and Emission Reductions in Municipal Facilities

Planning and Delivering Deep Energy and Emission Reductions in Municipal Facilities

Age is just a number!
Built in the 1930s and with its place in the Mayors’ Megawatt Challenge top decile of energy efficient municipal buildings, the iconic Vancouver City Hall has much to teach us about achieving and sustaining high standards of energy efficiency. On November 16th we heard from Craig Edwards, Manager of Energy & Carbon Strategy, about the policy, retrofits and management practices which brought them this far and the City’s plans for completing the progress to net zero emissions.
