About the presenter :
Andrew Pape-Salmon is the Director of the Energy Efficiency Branch with the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources. He is responsible for implementing the Province’s Energy Efficient Buildings Strategy (EEBS) which includes the LiveSmart BC Efficiency Incentive Program, support for green provisions in the BC Building Code, the development of regulated standards for equipment and manufactured building components under the Energy Efficiency Act, a net zero energy homes and buildings program and last but not least the Community Action on Energy and Emissions Program.
About the Topic:
Andrew’s topic this month is specific to the regulation of energy efficiency of windows, doors and skylights that form part of the building envelope. This is a follow-up of the overview of the changes in the regulation of energy efficiency for buildings which Andrew presented about 18 months ago. Now the regulations are in place and his presentation will help us to understand and implement them in our design and construction of buildings. His talk will focus on the changes in regulations for fenestration systems as they apply to both new and existing buildings. It will provide a detailed overview of the specific changes in the regulations, and steps required to test and label the products to comply with them. Please join the members and guests in learning more about the new laws that govern the energy efficiency of our buildings and the steps we need to take to comply.
