The presentation had some great questions about how realistic is it to scale up panelized deep energy retrofits on an industrial scale, the sub systems Butterwick is using in the Sundance project and what needs to happen to bring more of these projects to market.
Charles Klak, an environmental engineering student and CSE Edmonton Section member, attended the tour for both personal and professional reasons. He cares about preserving the natural environment, but also wanted to know what kind of projects he could work on after he graduates.
This is what Charles had to say about what he learned:
"Reducing impact is very achievable. Rather than replace a building, I didn't know it was possible to wrap the building in a sweater."
Thanks to CSCE for inviting Retrofit Canada for sharing the good word about Deep Energy Retrofits and to everyone who participated.
Stay tuned for more.
