Affordable housing energy-efficiency program
Energy efficiency in homes is essential to reducing the cost of electricity used and lowering the environmental impact of energy. In this webinar, we will learn more about the Energy Affordability Program the Independent Electricity System Operator offers via Save on Energy. The program is for housing providers, such as municipality-run housing, non-profits, and co-operatives and offers free assessments and upgrades for appliances, water-saving measures, and cold-climate heat pumps. We will learn more about the eligibility process and the types of support available.
Climate Change and Health Equity Webinar
In this webinar, Kim Perrotta from the Canadian Health Association for Sustainability and Equity (CHASE) will present findings from their report, produced with the CPHA and OPHA, on Climate Change, Health and Health Equity.
This report seeks to foster alliances between public health professionals, municipal staff, and local community groups. It provides case studies and identifies the health and health equity benefits that can be gained by promoting five local climate solutions – public transit, walkable neighbourhoods, active transportation infrastructure, green buildings, and green space.
Sustainable Fleet Working Group Meeting
Clean Air Partnership will present current EV resources, tools, case studies, and capacity development offerings. We will also be seeking municipal updates and priority needs to inform 2024’s work plan. In this meeting, we will be seeking input on the following questions:
- Do you pay a fee to the EV charge station provider (i.e. Flo/Ivy)? If so, how much?
- How is fee revenue distributed?
- What is the charging fee (if any)?
- How is the agreement term?
- Do you provide any special provisions for residents? (i.e. free overnight charging, special parking passes, etc.)
- What are you currently working on – updates on fleet electrification, low-carbon equipment, diesel phase-out?
District Energy Webinar Series: Ottawa’s ESAP Project
This webinar is part of a series of webinars on District Energy Systems. In this webinar, we will learn more about the Energy Services Acquisition Program (ESAP) in Ottawa, which modernizes the energy system of 80 buildings to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and save money. The system connects to four energy centres using more than 14 kilometres of underground piping and will use a district energy system (DES). We will learn more about the regulations, technology used, barriers &benefits and lessons learned thus far.
