Event highlights

Are you ready to take on the Zero Carbon Building challenge?

These workshop webinars will review important foundational knowledge for zero-carbon buildings, with an emphasis on the latest versions of CAGBC’s Zero Carbon Building standards.  The ZCB-Design Standard v3 and the ZCB-Performance standard v2 apply to all new buildings except single and multi-family residential buildings that fall under Part 9 of the National Building Code.  The requirements for both new and existing buildings will be addressed. 

Topics include:

- The zero carbon balance,
- The zero carbon transition plan,
- Embodied carbon,
- Thermal Energy Demand Intensity (TEDI),
- Energy use Intensity (EUI),
- Peak demand, and
- Renewable energy

Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a live Q&A and interactive activities to reinforce the course material.

Please note: These sessions are not intended to provide professional level knowledge on how to develop strategies or prepare supporting documentation for program compliance.









This course will be delivered by William Marshall P.Eng, LEED AP, CMVP Partner, Equilibrium Engineering
