A Roadmap for Large Building Retrofits in Canada
This course discusses a 2017 report released 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. 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.No$19+Public sector/utilities, building codes

Building Strong Market Infrastructure for Canada's Retrofit EconomyThis session distills information from a recent report and sets out a series of comprehensive and specific actions for governments and, more importantly, for industry to build one of the world’s most robust and dynamic retrofit economies by 2030. CaGBC’s research demonstrates that national targets can only be reached by reducing the emissions of the millions of square feet of existing institutional, commercial, and residential buildings across the country. Yet, while green building approaches, practices, and technologies are being widely adopted for new buildings, there is an underinvestment in the retrofit of Canada’s existing building stock to drive energy and GHG reductions. Correcting this underinvestment requires the development of a strong retrofit economy where the market takes the lead in transforming Canada’s built environment to help fight climate change and create new economic opportunities for Canadians.

Pattern Language from Passive House: 4-Day Online Course"A Pattern Language from Passive House" is an interactive workshop that teaches cost-effective planning and design of affordable, low-emission, mid-rise, multi-unit, wood-framed housing.

This four-part workshop presents design problems common to multi-unit buildings, followed by solutions that have worked in previous high-performance projects. These solutions are organized into "patterns" using a format adapted from A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander (et al).

The patterns presented in this workshop are drawn from the hundreds of affordable multi-unit buildings constructed to the Passive House standard worldwide, because this is the largest cohort of affordable, low-emission, mid-rise, multi-unit housing. While these solutions are taken from Passive House buildings, they are applicable for residential building design to meet Step 4 of the BC Energy Step Code, as well as multi-unit buildings aiming for similar low-TEDI or not-zero energy standards. Likewise, while this workshop focuses on affordable housing, the patterns apply equally to market- and luxury-housing projects.

Introduction to Transportation Electrification: Business Opportunities & Market TrendsHosted by Forth, this workshop will provide an overview of the growing electric vehicle industry with three sessions: EV/Charging 101, Equitable Transportation Electrification, and EV/Charging 201

EV 101/Charging 101
Electric vehicles (EVs) will be a major disruptor for the US electric power sector, with the number of EVs in the US projected to increase from 1.5 million in 2020 to 10–35 million by 2030. While this creates a large opportunity for the electricity industry, it also comes with some new challenges. This session will provide key insights into today's EV marketplace, the new types of EVs coming onto the market, and present an overview of EV Charging technologies as well as an overview of the dominant charging modalities, including the new high-speed DC Fast Chargers. Attendees will also learn the basics of "smart charging" and networked software as well as showcase some of the more dominant public charging site configurations.

Equitable Transportation Electrification
Historically, traditionally underserved communities have been disproportionally impacted by transportation-related pollution, and they have had less access to clean transportation. This session will outline the importance of ensuring that frontline communities have access to electric vehicles and the current policies and programs bringing electric transportation options to these communities.

EV 201/Charging 201
Following the EV and Charging 101 session, the 201 series will take a deeper dive into the evolving landscape of vehicle electrification across the vehicle classes, and touch on the fast-growing micromobility sector. Presenters will discuss the use cases for plug-in electric and battery electric vehicles and the potential use of hydrogen for powering larger Class 8 vehicles for interstate transport. Charging 201 will focus on how networked smart chargers used in concert with a building EMS or DRMS can respond to demand response events and avoid demand charges that could trigger higher energy costs. This session will also cover the emergence of workplace charging certification programs that can be shown to increase EV adoption by employees.
