How Do Your Buildings Stack Up? Mandatory Reporting and Voluntary Certifications

Partners in Project Green Members: $25 + HST | Not-Yet Members: $50 + HST Tickets

Sponsored by CWB Group

Join us for the second installment of Partners in Project Green‘s Breakfast Series. This event will feature two presentations with the aim of educating commercial building owners on mandatory energy and water consumption reporting requirements and voluntary certifications.

Presentation 1: Mandatory Energy and Water Reporting and Benchmarking (EWRB) For Large Buildings
If you own, manage or represent a commercial or residential building that’s 100,000 square feet or larger, you may be required to report its energy and water use by July 1, 2019 under Ontario’s Energy and Water Reporting and Benchmarking (EWRB) initiative. By July 2020, you may be required to report on buildings over 50,000 square feet.

The Ontario Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines will provide an overview of the energy and water reporting requirement. Attendees can expect to learn how this initiative can help building owners in saving money and improving building performance.

Presentation 2: ISO 50001 Energy Management Certification for Commercial Buildings
Fred Khalichi from CWB Group will give a presentation on ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems, an internationally recognized standard intended to improve the energy performance of organizations and lead to reductions of energy consumption and costs.

Fred will provide a brief overview of the standard’s requirements and implementation, as well as its similarities with ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems and ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems.

Fred will also discuss the government incentive programs available, including Natural Resources Canada’s (NRCan) ISO 50001 implementation financial assistance for the commercial sector, and the US Department Of Energy’s (DOE) free online ISO 50001 Ready Navigator software tool, which is designed to assist organizations in implementing the standard.
