Event Details

The World needs to drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But how?

Since buildings are responsible for approximately 40% of total global greenhouse gasses and a significant majority of existing buildings will still be in use well into the future, they present a massive opportunity for action. 

A critical response is industrial scale, deep energy retrofits to existing buildings.

Advantages of Panelized Deep Energy Retrofit (DER):

• Lowest total cost of ownership
• Less expensive than component by component replacement.
• Higher quality
• Faster, less disruptive to residents
• Easier to manage
• Better total solution: beautiful, superbly comfortable, healthy living
• The only way to affordably make existing buildings zero carbon ready

Join Peter Amerongen as he brings us through DER case studies so we can understand the details of how to implement these important ideas for retrofits.

Peter Amerongen has been designing and building energy efficient houses in and around Edmonton, Alberta since the 1970’s. Since 2007, he has designed and built 11 net zero energy houses (including several that are generating significant surplus energy) in Edmonton’s 5100OC (9200OF) heating degree-day climate. Under his leadership, Habitat Studio has also built more than 50 houses with Energuide Ratings of 86 or better (under Canada’s ERS rating system). He and his team designed and built Canada’s first net zero energy affordable multi-family project and Canada’s first net zero energy church in the Edmonton neighbourhood of North Glenora.

 Net zero energy buildings and retrofits demand careful attention to saving small amounts of energy. This micro focus has left Peter with a profound appreciation for the monumental challenge of preparing all of our buildings for a low carbon future – especially our existing buildings - hopefully in time to avoid catastrophic climate change.

 Peter is an original member of Edmonton City Council’s Energy Transition Advisory Committee and of the CHBA Net Zero Council Management Committee. He is also a Certified Passive House Consultant (PHIUS and PHI).
