About the Topic:
The building envelope (or enclosure) separates the indoor controlled environment from the exterior natural environment. The building’s energy requirements are affected by both the envelope system design as well as that of the mechanical systems that condition the controlled environment. This presentation concerns current developments that directly affect the efficiency of these systems. Mr. Pape-Salmon’s presentation includes: the 2007 Energy Plan and other commitments, Energy Efficient Buildings Strategy, Impacts of Energy Efficiency Measures on the Bottom Line, 2006 Energy Efficiency Act standards, Proposed Energy Efficiency Act updates and BC Green Building Code options. Changes are coming in the Codes and regulations regarding the energy efficiency of our buildings. They involve regulation, incentives and awareness missions.
