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.

Building Automation Systems Optimization EssentialsAt its core, a well-run Building Automation system (BAS) will reduce energy consumption, and allow for a more efficient operation of a building’s systems. This should in turn allow the building management to increase the comfort of their tenants while reducing their operating costs.



In this 1-day Building Automation Systems Essentials course, we will examine systems basics and energy conservation strategies that we permit you to run your BAS efficiently and effectively – regardless of which system you are running.

Taking Control of Energy Use to Improve Financial Performance – Dollars to $ense WorkshopEconomic circumstances require companies and organizations of all types to improve their cashflow. Luckily, energy is not a fixed cost and can be managed just like any other business function. This course will provide time-tested and applied ways to reduce energy consumption in buildings, notably under varying occupancy levels.



Drawing from the experience of our expert instructors, as well as from highly relevant material from NRCan’s Dollars to Sense program, CIET has created a 1-day workshop to help you take control of energy use to improve financial performance and reduce your operation costs.

Making the Case for Energy Efficiency – Dollars to $ense WorkshopAlthough the benefits and justification of energy efficiency may seem obvious to some of us, this is often not the case for many of our clients and even our colleagues. Being able to articulate and present the many positive attributes of Energy Efficiency (EE) - from operational cost savings to conservation to reduced equipment maintenance - is key to selling EE projects.



Drawing from the experience of our expert instructors, as well as from highly relevant material from NRCan’s Dollars to Sense program, CIET has created a 1-day workshop to help you make the case for EE.
