FortisBC New Construction Program: Natural Gas Building Design
October 9 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This session is part of the 2019 Fall Professional Development Series.
Natural gas continues to be a cost-effective fuel to provide thermal heating to new and existing buildings. Building energy performance requirements in B.C. are evolving with the increasing drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the built sector. However, additional high-performance design considerations in new builds can make natural gas buildings be part of the solution.
This session will present design considerations FortisBC has observed in high performance natural gas buildings and how they are used to meet the higher steps of the BC Energy Step Code. The presentation will also outline available new construction incentive programs and how they can be used to support the business case for efficient buildings.
