CleanBC NZER Challenge Workshops Series: Solutions for Low-Carbon Heating & Hot Water

June 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


This event is free, which is made possible through funding from the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources, BC Hydro and the City of Vancouver. To support future ZEBx programming like this, please consider purchasing a ticket at a value of your choice (recommended amount for this workshop is $10-$50).

Low carbon heating and hot water systems are becoming increasingly mainstream in the design and construction of high performance buildings in BC. This response is due to both greenhouse gas (GHG) emission regulations in select areas and owners seeking to meet organizational GHG reduction targets.

Recent winners from the CleanBC Net-Zero Energy Ready Design Challenge are leading the way in innovative design solutions for low carbon heating and hot water. This workshop will showcase four of these projects (three multi-family and one commercial office), each using a different low carbon heating solution, ranging from electric baseboards to heat pumps to district heating.

For low carbon domestic hot water, the latest high efficiency solutions in multi-family, central heat pump design will be presented by one of the leading experts on the topic. The workshop will also provide a status update on industry’s current readiness to design and build low carbon solutions at scale by sharing early, select findings of the multi-stakeholder, provincial BC Low Carbon Building Electrification Road Map.

The two hour event will include presentations, facilitated workshop sessions and networking opportunities.


This event will take place online via Webinar.
