April 26: GBCI Canada Town Hall

The global foundation for sustainability that we have set in place is indestructible. During these unprecedented times, sustainability and resiliency are still at the core of building healthy, efficient, and equitable spaces and communities. Our vision for the future is stronger than ever. The global green building community has the opportunity and responsibility to share our best practices and resilient behaviors with communities around the world.

Hear about LEED developments that reflect the local market, accelerating zero carbon buildings, and the Investor Confidence Project and Investor Ready Energy and Efficiency certification as a tool to scale up retrofits.

Please join us for an engaging digital event featuring Thomas Mueller, CEO of GBCI Canada, with a keynote presentation by USGBC’s President & CEO, Mahesh Ramanujam who will present our reimagined vision for the future of LEED and the next generation of USGBC, followed by Dave Witek, COO of Arc and moderated by Brandy Burdeniuk, CCO of GBCI CA.

April 28: SITES Community Call

SITES is used by landscape architects, designers, engineers, planners, ecologists, architects, developers, policy-makers and others to align land development and management with innovative sustainable design.

This month's community call focuses on site construction: closing the design-construction gap, how best to communicate SITES in specifications, working with contractors, etc.

Presenters:
Heather Venhaus, Regenerative Environmental Design: Heather is the former SITES Program Manager for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, contributing author to The Sustainable Sites Handbook, author of Designing the Sustainable Site, and now Principal, Regenerative Environmental Design (RED), a sustainable design-consulting firm that strives to connect natural and built systems in mutually beneficial ways. Using a creative and analytical approach, RED works closely with project teams to find sustainable design solutions that improve site performance and save time and money over the life of the project.

Bryan Astheimer, Re:Vision Architecture: Bryan has over a decade of professional experience in ecologically sensitive site design, sustainable infrastructure master planning (solid waste management, potable water supply, wastewater treatment and reuse, energy generation and distribution, ecological systems), hydrologic analysis and design, LEED consulting and high performance building design within the US and internationally.

April 29: PEER and Homer: Determining the resilience of your hybrid system

To win financial and stakeholder support for your hybrid power project, it’s critical to prove value, reliability and resilience. But demonstrating project value from feasibility through completion is difficult.

Join us on April 29th, 2021 at 9:00 AM MDT to learn how two resources make this difficult task easier.

Katherine Hammack, GBCI Director of Special Projects, will present the PEER Program, which aims to transform the power sector just as LEED transformed the building sector. PEER – or performance excellence in electricity renewal – is a rating system that evaluates a power system’s reliability and resilience performance post construction.

Peter Lilienthal, Ph.D., UL Global Microgrid Lead and Founder HOMER Energy by UL, will show how HOMER modeling software enables you to validate at the feasibility stage that your proposed hybrid power system is the least-cost solution.

Together, these solutions are best practices for developing distributed energy resources.
