On Nov. 20, ZEBx will host the “Heat Pumps for Domestic Hot Water Applications: System Options and Case Studies” breakfast seminar. The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at BC Hydro’s head office at 333 Dunsmuir Street in Vancouver.
The City of Vancouver’s Zero Emissions Building Plan and the Province’s BC Energy Step Code have both placed limits on buildings’ annual space heating load, with reductions of 50 per cent to 80 per cent estimated for most new buildings over the next 15 years. For residential buildings, this will leave the domestic hot water load as one of the largest remaining end uses, which is mostly supplied by high carbon fuel sources.
Guest speakers from Integral Group, Sharc Energy Systems and BC Hydro will discuss distributed and centralized system options for DHW applications, local case studies and relevant operating data, and BC’s available programs through BC Hydro and EfficiencyBC.
ZEBx is a collaborative platform and catalyst for market transformation in buildings. Its mission is to accelerate the implementation of attractive, cost-effective and exemplary zero emission buildings at scale. ZEBx seeks to create solutions in the industry, increase capacity and drive economic growth in “clean” buildings.
