Renewable Natural Gas
Free Educational Webinar
Tues, Nov, 29, 2022, 12:00 -1:30 PM
To build a growing and measurable appreciation for what RNG or Biomethane -often referred to as “Carbon Neutral” - can do to assist in managing our growing waste-stream, reduce our carbon emissions, and move us towards a Net Zero / circular economy in Ontario. Essentially, this Webinar seeks to show how best Ontario can grow the RNG options to green our natural gas supply and distribution more quickly?
Key Audiences Include:
AGENDA & Key Issues:
John Loncar, P. Eng., M.Eng., MBA, CEM, Specialist RNG Business Dv’t
3. National Opportunities for RNG in Canada /Ontario Supply and Demand (15 Min)
How do Municipalities guarantee or optimize RNG feedstocks – waste and green bin etc.?
5. Industry perspectives and partnerships on RNG Projects (30 Min)
How can market participants support the creation a long-term Voluntary program?

TS132 Building Envelope Improvements for Decarbonization Objectives
Thu, Dec. 1, 2022, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
ConEd Credits: OAA 1.5; BSS 1.5
The decarbonization challenges of existing buildings is noted in the CaGBC report on deep retrofits of large buildings. The CIB interest rate on the funds are lower for deep retrofits when the projects have greater reductions of GHGs even if they cost more in initial costs. The federal government suggests using a 40-year lifecycle cost fossil fuel savings should reflect the rising price of carbon up to $300/ton. This presentation will review studies on interior and exterior energy savings options for windows while discussing the recladding of buildings and interior insulation options. The speakers will address how to model retrofit options and choose the right size new electric HVAC equipment to meet the changed loads. Join this session to learn new insights and solutions for the decarbonization of existing buildings.
