Since the early 1970s, energy efficiency (EE) has been recognized as the most relevant mechanism to optimize the way we meet our energy needs. For the last 25 years, EE has also been identified as a favoured approach to fighting climate change. The introduction of EE building codes, standards and labels, and energy performance contracting schemes are but a few initiatives developed in Canada over the past 40 years.
This 60 minute webinar will take a close look at the history and current state of the EE sector across Canada. A quick overview of each province’s or territory’s history related to the EE sector and how legal and institutional frameworks have evolved will enable participants to understand the key success factors supporting the development of the EE field.
Join our presenter Genevieve Gauthier for this one-hour presentation. Some of the key take-aways of her presentation include:
Understand how the EE sector has developed and evolved over the years in different markets, as well as the current status of EE in each Canadian province and territory.
Draw from best practices and lessons learned, developed in Canada and apply them in the continuous development of the EE market in Canada, the U.S. and abroad.
Draw inspirations from the case studies that illustrate key success factors and showcase unique initiatives that could be adapted and implemented in various jurisdictions.
Helping Municipalities to Identify Appropriate Rehab Technologies for Sewers
Date:  January 22, 2018
Location:  Mississauga Grand

Many municipalities have collected a large amount of CCTV data on sewers and manholes. However, they often struggle to use the inspection data to answer three fundamental questions: What assets should be fixed? When they should be fixed? and How they should be fixed?
