The Energy Management Association is teaming up with the EPA's Energy Star Program to host a free AIA-approved webinar that will outline key concepts and best practices for developing a robust, ongoing energy benchmarking service. Energy benchmarking with Energy Star's Portfolio Manager creates opportunities when it is implemented as an ongoing service to position the solution provider as a trusted advisor. Tracking and benchmarking energy use for client properties positions facility service companies as conscious of their clients cost and accountable for recommendations. The result is better client retention, differentiation and, ultimately, better profit margins. Webinar Title: Energy Benchmarking as a Service with Energy Star's Portfolio Manager Sponsors: If you are interested in sponsoring this webinar, contact anna@energymgmt.org When: 2 p.m. Eastern / 1 p.m. Central / Noon Mountain / 11 a.m. Pacific, Dec. 3 Registration Link: https://www.energymgmt.org/energy-benchmarking-as-a-service/ Presenter: Peter Flippen, IEI Solutions (on behalf of EPA's Energy Star Partnership) Learning Objectives: Review the opportunity to position your business as a trusted advisor using Portfolio Manager benchmarking Define the difference between Portfolio Manager energy benchmarking as a project vs. an ongoing service Identify the key concepts and designs for an ongoing energy benchmarking service Outline a plan for piloting and launching a benchmarking service Continuing Education Credits: AIA 1 LU Cost: Free [...]

More than 400 participants and leading experts in wind energy, solar energy and energy storage came together for the Canadian Renewable Energy Association's (CanREA) first-ever virtual forum on November 9 and 10, 2020. “One message heard consistently throughout the Forum is that Canada must capitalize on its massive untapped wind and solar energy potential if it is to build an affordable, clean and reliable energy system that will help Canada reach the goal of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in 2050,” said CanREA's president and CEO, Robert Hornung. “CanREA and its more than 250 members are committed to working towards this.” The Honourable Seamus O'Regan, Canada's Minister of Natural Resources, participated in a live discussion about the role of wind energy, solar energy and energy storage in Canada's future energy mix following his opening remarks. The event also featured senior members from Hydro-Québec, Alberta Electric System Operator, and SaskPower, who discussed innovation and collaboration opportunities in the sector. www.renewableassociation.ca [...]

The ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force has released the Alternate Care Site HVAC Guidebook, Developed by the ASHRAE Alternate Care Sites (ACS) Task Force, it provides engineering recommendations, solutions, and guidance to address HVAC systems for ACS. “Our work over several months has resulted in a guidebook that will be useful in current and future efforts to address the demand for additional hospital beds in combatting COVID-19,” said Epidemic Task Force member David Eldridge. The guidebook provides recommendations for applying standards which are used for permanent facilities to temporary sites under less than ideal conditions or with time, budget and technical feasibility constraints. It is primarily applicable to host sites with large open spaces such as convention centers and other large spaces. It can also apply to the conversion of smaller facilities with open areas such as school gymnasiums. Specific recommendations include guidance for design requirements, air flow, filtration, space conditions and methodology for identifying which mechanical system approaches may be pursued. To view the complete Alternative Care Site HVAC Guidebook and other COVID-19 resources, visit ashrae.org/COVID-19. [...]

British Columbia is first, Saskatchewan is last, Prince Edward Island is most improved, and the federal government needs to help all provinces ramp up to meet national energy efficiency goals. This is the message from the second annual Scorecard of provincial energy efficiency policies by a Carleton-based research organization, Efficiency Canada. The 250-page report benchmarks Canadian provinces across 42 separate metrics, such as energy savings from public utility programs, electric vehicle registrations, building code adoption, and industrial energy management. Energy efficiency has become a go-to solution to recover from COVID-19's social and economic impacts in a way that promotes clean energy and long-term resilience. In 2020, the federal government committed to improving average energy intensity by three percent per year, which is a tripling from current levels. Energy efficiency has become a go-to solution to recover from COVID-19's social and economic impacts in a way that promotes clean energy and long-term resilience. Organizations such as the International Energy Agency and Canada's Task Force for a Resilient Recovery recommend investing in building retrofits because they create jobs, promote spending in local economies, and spur productive local investments. www.scorecard.efficiencycanada.org/2020 [...]
