THE ENERGY STEP CODE & FUTURE OF B.C.’S BUILT ENVIRONMENT
Free Live Broadcast Webinar – February 28th, 2017 from 12-1pm.
Sponsored by the Energy Step Code Advisory Committee. A diverse coalition representing the interests of the building industry, local governments, utilities, and the Province of British Columbia. The committtee developed the Energy Step Code over a several-year collaborative process, and now oversees its implementation. Committee members include representatives from the Union of B.C. Municipalities, industry associations representing large developers and home builders, professional associations of architects, building officials, engineers, planners, and local government managers.
Last summer’s Climate Leadership Plan set a goal to ensure all new British Columbia buildings will be net zero within 15 years—and introduced the Energy Step Code as the policy path to get us there. This engaging and entertaining one-hour webinar will “lift the lid” on the Energy Step Code and bring planners, building officials, and other local government managers up to speed on the nuts and bolts. Featuring tales from the trenches and a glimpse of what comes next!
What you’ll learn:
- What is the Energy Step Code, and how will it work?
- Why is it important? Who is on board?
- How are local governments already preparing?
- Where can I find resources and support?
