SBM Panel – How Much Energy Efficiency is Enough?


Energy efficiency in any project is always a hotly debated issue, be it residential, commercial, institutional, or industrial. Usually, the questions are along the lines of cost rather that the effectiveness of or impact of the source.

Our Panel bring perspectives from project Inception (Cindy Choy), Construction (Carmine Militano), and Operation (Mark Pauls). At each stage decisions and actions can profoundly affect the energy consumption for the short term and long term performance of a project.

The Panel will discuss energy efficiency Measures, Reporting, Technology, plus much more.

We'd like to hear from you, so send us your burning questions to ask to the Panel at info@sustainablebuildingmanitoba.ca and be ready for the discussion and the Mixer that follows!
