FortisBC-UBCO Collaborative Research Project: Smart Energy Chair

Exploring the best smart energy choices to meet the growing energy needs of British Columbia (BC) is important due to Canada’s new climate change mitigation targets as well as the rising economic burdens of energy use. A collaborative study has been proposed between UBCO and FortisBC identify smart solutions energy conservation, climate change mitigation, demand side management, and the development of net-zero communities, and to provide recommendations and define long-term implementation strategies for the above smart energy choices. This study will explore the state-of-the-art technologies in building energy use and hybrid energy systems, and will provide in depth guidance to decision makers and general public on complying with energy efficient standards and making the best energy choices form their buildings and communities.
