Achieving Net Zero Energy with Tilt Wall

October 5, 2022 from 11:00am to 12:00pm Mountain Standard Time

Jesse Hunt

We’ve moved on from a time when small consumer decisions like using compostable straws could be considered an adequate response to address climate concerns. The stakes are high and the market is responding. In the wake of the pandemic, there is now unprecedented pressure on businesses across all industries to embed sustainability as a feature, not just a bug. If you are a company that owns, develops, designs, or builds warehouse structures and are concerned with improving your ESG reporting, there is some untapped low-hanging fruit. Many of these structures consume relatively small amounts of energy that can efficiently and economically be offset through good design, quality building systems, and attention to construction details. This seminar will discuss strategies for achieve net-zero energy with tilt wall.

The 60,000-ft2 Wilkinson Avenue multi-tenant warehouse building located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, is part of the Canada Green Building Council’s Zero Carbon Buildings Pilot Project. The building combines energy efficiency and renewable energy generation to achieve net-zero energy. Otherwise said, on an annual basis, the building generates as much energy as it consumes. Because of this, the project will diligently chip away at its total carbon accounting over time, continuously reducing its overall carbon footprint. The cost of this noble achievement was far less than most think, which is good because the proposition of doing more than the minimum to combat climate change is being considered more broadly and deeply than ever before.
