The Evolution of a Portfolio Strategy for Achieving Decarbonization and Energy Efficiency Objectives
This presentation will focus on using a portfolio approach to cost-effectively achieve a community-scale reduction in emissions across hundreds of buildings that are geographically dispersed. It will reference our plan to achieve decarbonization and energy efficiency objectives across a ~400 building portfolio distributed across Canada. The presentation will address prioritization, business case considerations, internal and external pressures, and a summary of outcomes to date, as well as areas where even greater economic and climate benefits could be achieved through deeper and more rigorous portfolio approaches in the future.
During his 19 years as a professional, has specialized in the development of strategic plans to achieve carbon neutrality in existing building portfolios, for free. Currently, as National Director, he is committed to scaling his knowledge of deep energy retrofit projects to help Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) achieve carbon neutrality in their facilities by 2030 through billion-dollar investments in aging infrastructure. The team he leads consists of more than 80 energy, architecture, engineering, commissioning, sustainability and project management professionals who provide technical knowledge and support to the capital planning, facility management and project delivery teams responsible for more than 400 federal government facilities.
Prior to joining BGIS, his most important achievements were the delivery of practical sustainability solutions, including facilitating LEED design and construction services. More specifically, Daniel focused on energy conservation of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems. Projects include geoexchange heating and cooling as well as an extensive deep retrofit program in occupied facilities and an industrial power plant at the University of Ottawa from 2010 to 2015.
