Energy Savings

2030 District Energy Studies

The 2030 District is kicking off new energy studies for participating 2030 District members. SES has been contracted to conduct the studies, supported by funding from FortisBC. The resulting studies will provide unique pathways for each building to meet their 2030 District targets over the next five to ten years. The studies will consider the age, unique loads and requirements, and future plans for the building. They will provide concept-level design solutions that are reasonable and cost-effective while prioritizing load reductions and efficiencies.

2030 District REFBC Funding

The GV 2030 District will soon begin work to develop a ‘Resiliency Tool’ for members, thanks to funding from the Real Estate Foundation of BC (REFBC) and the support of the University of Victoria. The decision support tool will help commercial real estate owners identify retrofit opportunities to improve resiliency.
