Energy Efficiency in the Ontario Building Code. What You Need to Know for January 1, 2012


06 February 2013
Location: February 22, 2012 - Toronto
Provider: Sustainable Buildings Canada

The energy efficiency requirements in Ontario for both housing and buildings changed at the beginning of January in a very significant way. Several options will be available for both, and it will be necessary for practitioners in both Part 9 and Part 3 buildings to understand these options and how to select the one that will meet the needs of their clients and the project. This overview will look at the options from both a design and a regulatory perspective.

Speaker Bob Bach, who is a founding Co-Chair of the Building Code Energy Advisory Council and continues as Vice-Chair, Energy, of the recently renamed Building Code Conservation Advisory Council, has been involved with energy efficiency in building codes since 1993. He was a consultant to the ASHRAE 90.1 Standards Project Committee, and has developed and delivered training to architects, engineers, and building officials across Ontario on energy codes. He was also a consultant to Natural Resources Canada on the update the Model National Energy Code for Buildings, resulting in the formation of the Building Energy Code Collaborative whose members included representatives from the governments of all the provinces and territories. Bob is also a founding director of Sustainable Buildings Canada, a member and former Team Captain of the Canadian Team for the World Sustainable Building Conference held in October in Helsinki, and the current Chair of the Mechanical Services Advisory Committee, a sub-committee of the Toronto Area Chief Building Officials Committee.
