This 200-level seminar will discuss opportunities for integrating solar and wind energy into commercial construction projects. In this presentation, we will examine how to:
-Create and present a best option plan for owners or managers wishing to integrate renewable energy installations (ie Photovoltaics, Solar Thermal and Wind). The integration will include review of the renewable energy application in partnership with varied heating solutions (conventional, radiant, geothermal);
-Identify and calculate current local rebates and tax incentives for various renewable energy options, enabling delivery of rough costs associated with a renewable option; and
-Integrate various requirements for renewable in building design and planning processes.
The two hour presentation will consist of Powerpoint with an encouraged Q&A exchange. 2 AIA Sustainable Design HSW/CEU will be offered for attending this seminar. Liz Argo, Director of Outreach and Media Development at Alteris Renewables Inc, will be delivering this seminar.
