Community Energy Planning
Community energy plans support to municipalities’ in their efforts to better understand and manage their local energy needs, identify opportunities for energy efficiency and clean/renewable energy integration, and develop robust plans to meet achievable goals.
Funding is available from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities to assist municipalities in the assessment and investment in energy and greenhouse gas saving measures.
The Green Municipal Fund provides funding for feasibility studies, pilot projects and capital projects related to initiatives that reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program provides grants of up to $175,000 to develop plans and studies to reduce GHG emissions and help your community adapt to impacts of climate change.
Sustainable Buildings Canada
Arborus Consulting is a partner with Sustainable Buildings Canada to deliver the integrated design workshops, industry seminars and other knowledge-transfer mechanisms to encourage and assist the design and construction industry to develop low carbon buildings.
Smart buildings have enhanced controllability with grid and user interfaces that allow the building systems to respond to signals from the energy utility or energy management team to reduce demand and energy use. The new generation of building monitoring and control systems uses open-source programming with internet protocol (IP) connected hardware, eliminating the need for expensive proprietary Building Automation Control systems. One of the key strategies Arborus deploys in the development of energy saving strategies is “controllability”. Contact us to find out how you can optimize your building’s performance through enhanced controls and the “Internet of Things” technology.
