EVENT DETAILS

This full-day event at Evergreen Brick Works will bring architects, engineers, building owners, property developers, trade unions, utilities and technologists together for a deep dive into the business case for zero carbon, insight into recent zero carbon certifications, and best practices from industry leaders.
 
Program highlights include:

  • A panel on “Regulating Zero” discussing the policies, programs and ideas that encourage zero carbon development in local areas.
  • “Strategies for Reducing Embodied Carbon” including tools and expertise to tackle this challenge head on.
  • Highlights from international zero carbon projects and learnings from the most recent zero carbon certifications.
  • Information on how to reduce Thermal Energy Demand Intensity (TEDI) and the need to rethink HVAC systems and adopt low grade heat from heat pumps or low carbon district energy systems.
  • The day will conclude with a networking event to meet fellow attendees and regional stakeholders.
