Resilient World Institute (RWI) E103 Energy Performance Standards: TGS, OBC SB-10 & CMHC (1 day)
Understanding the technology solutions needed for a sustainable future
Trainers: Afzal Siddique and Phil Fung
The Ontario Building Code (OBC) SB-10, Toronto Green Standard (TGS) Tier I and II, and CMHC Rental Construction Financing Program have stringent energy performance requirements. Some of these standards have been amended in 2018 to target a higher
energy performance goal.
This course will cover the latest energy performance path of these standards by analyzing specific reference buildings that each path is comparing with. The reference building analyses will cover: Building Envelope, Mechanical Equipment, Lighting, Heat Recovery, and limitations on Peak Electric Demand and Annual Carbon Dioxide Emissions.
This course will also answer the following questions:
How severe are these energy code amendments?
What energy efficiency measures should be taken to meet the ever-increasing energy standard of the reference buildings?
In what area of these amendments is most prominent and therefore should be set as a design priority?
