The City of Vancouver’s Integrated Rainwater Management Plan and Rain City Strategy provides rainwater management targets and design standards for public spaces (streets, public spaces, parks) and private spaces (private property, City-owned property) in the City of Vancouver. To reach these targets, the City has adopted several Green Rainwater Infrastructure (GRI) approaches to achieve the design standards in both types of spaces. The GRI types that will help the City meet its targets sustainably include green roofs, rain barrels, and rain.
This multiple]internship project aims at three applications: BCHydro's continuing efforts to encourage energy conserving actions by its clients and customers through its PowerSmart program, the City of Vancouverfs sustainability program and Team Northfs entry to the 2009 Solar Decathlon competition. Each internship will produce a prototype and/or presentation with the intent to use these results, directly or as strategic insight, in PowerSmart public exhibitions and in the Solar Decathlon house.
