8 Climate Smart Training Session #2 emission-reduction focus building efficiency

9 Collingwood Neighbourhood House electricity: lighting main buildingannual savings  de-lamped parkade (~50%)25% total electricity  lighting retrofits2.3 tonnes CO 2 e  behaviour change/awareness campaigns $9,300 (2.8-year payback)

10 Climate Smart Training Session #2 low-hanging fruit  “turn-it-off” behaviour change worthwhile investments  retrofit old lighting  use task lighting when appropriate  occupancy sensors  LED exit signs  photocell timers  remove un-needed lamps electricity: lighting

11 Climate Smart Training Session #2 low-hanging fruit  “turn-it-off” behaviour change  enable power management capabilities worthwhile investments  new Energy Star/EPEAT equipment  consider lap-tops rather than desk- tops  power bars on copiers, printers, microwaves, etc. electricity: office equipment

12 Climate Smart Training Session #2 installed heat recovery and solar panels for domestic hot water ~ 5.5 years payback period $55,000 in natural gas annual savings heating water 150 tonnes CO 2 e annual reductions

13 Climate Smart Training Session #2 Freybe Gourmet Foods savings  reduced work-week by 6 hours2% energy  lighting retrofits400,000 kWh /year  changing boiler usage eliminates need for 2 of 3 boilers 15% natural gas 400+ tonnes CO 2 e $75,000+ all projects: immediate to 1.5 year payback period annual savings

14 Climate Smart Training Session #2 low-hanging fruit  install programmable thermostats (or low-tech alternative: appoint someone)  proactively maintain equipment  weatherstrip doors and windows  proper location of cooling equipment  install ceiling fans Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning building efficiency

15 Climate Smart Training Session #2 worthwhile investments?  what kind of heating/cooling system?  how much control do you have?  consult an expert HVAC building efficiency

16 Climate Smart Training Session #2  daily, weekly, monthly, seasonally  turn off lights, equipment  adjust time clocks  HVAC controls (e.g., daylight savings) standard operating procedures building efficiency

17 FortisBC Energy Efficiency & Conservation (EEC) Program Overview Christina Treleaven, Energy Solutions Manager June 18, 2013

18 Why Energy Efficiency? Environment Government Shareholder Customer

19 Energy Consumption - Commercial

20 Incentive Programs Efficient Boiler Program Efficient Commercial Water Heater Program Efficiency a la carte Custom Design New Construction EnerTracker Program Continuous Optimization Program Energy Assessment Program

21 EEC Annual Energy Savings – Efficient Boiler Program, ,801 Cars 1,484 Cars Total participants: 198 Incentives paid: $1,730, Gigajoule savings: 63,031 gj/yr.  equal to heating homes Greenhouse Gas Emissions: 3, tCO 2  equal to removing cars off the road

22 Renewable Natural Gas

23 Designate 10% of your energy use as renewable natural gas Take advantage of a new way to reduce your environmental impact Displace the use of fossil fuel natural gas with a carbon neutral, renewable source of energy Contribute to developing renewable and sustainable energy in B.C. Compliment your other sustainability initiatives & be promoted within your community Reduce your carbon footprint by 10%

24 Natural gas for transportation Benefits of natural gas vehicles: Natural gas fuel costs have historically been 25 to 50% less than diesel Transportation industry biggest source of GHGs – 40% Greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by 20 to 30% Natural gas engines run quieter compared to diesel trucks New medium and heavy-duty incentive program Light-duty incentives also available

25 Climate Smart Training Session #2 utility rebates and incentives  Incentives available:  lighting  refrigeration  HVAC equipment YOUR CLIENT ADVISOR WILL HELP YOU!

26 Climate Smart Training Session #2 emission-reduction focus transportation

27 Climate Smart Training Session #2 installed route planning software 20% reduction in fuel projected shipping: fleet management

43 Climate Smart Training Session #2 what are your best opportunities? reduction round-robin

44 Climate Smart Training Session #2 BA CB increasing ease of implementation/ decreasing costs/increasing benefits potential GHG benefit/reduction prioritizing reduction opportunities

45 Climate Smart Training Session #2 building the business case for reducing source: zooomr.com

46 Climate Smart Training Session #2 financial considerations to help catalyze change  rising energy prices  carbon tax  carbon offsets?

47 Climate Smart Training Session #2  existing incentives  savings on labour financial considerations to help catalyze change

48 Climate Smart Training Session #2 investing in reductions 1.initial capital costs 2.operating costs and savings 3.marginal costs of new efficient equipment

49 Climate Smart Training Session #2 example: new boiler simple pay-back

55 Climate Smart Training Session #2 internal communications: building buy-in

56 Climate Smart Training Session #2  recruit champions  make the business case  convert an unlikely suspect creating change internally

57 Climate Smart Training Session #2 creating change internally  power in numbers  share workload  many departments/levels  both the keen and the influential

58 Climate Smart Training Session #2 1.choose a behaviour 2.identify barriers and benefits 3.implement your strategy Fostering Sustainable Behaviour by Doug McKenzie-Mohr influencing behaviour change creating change internally

59 Climate Smart Training Session #2 choose a behaviour  impact  probability of adoption  repetitive or one-time? influencing behaviour change

60 Climate Smart Training Session #2  focus on the critical action such as…  turn off your monitor  print double-sided  turn off your engine when stopped for more than 2 minutes  take public transit be specific influencing behaviour change

61 Climate Smart Training Session #2 influencing behaviour change

62 Climate Smart Training Session #2 influencing behaviour change

63 Climate Smart Training Session #2 subsidize transit passes reduce/ eliminate free parking incentive to take transit, walk, ride, carpool reduce/ eliminate free parking influencing behaviour change

64 Climate Smart Training Session #2  overcome forgetting  noticeable  self-explanatory  close in time and space to the behaviour influencing behaviour change

65 Climate Smart Training Session #2  overcome lack of motivation with high intentions  public  durable  promote involvement influencing behaviour change

66 Climate Smart Training Session #2  overcome lack of motivation with low intentions  reward positive or punish negative behaviour influencing behaviour change

67 Climate Smart Training Session #2  overcome lack of social pressure  be like everyone else influencing behaviour change

68 Climate Smart Training Session #2  overcome lack of knowledge  be like the cool kid  well-known and well- respected influencing behaviour change

69 Climate Smart Training Session #2 influencing behaviour change

70 Climate Smart Training Session #2  fun  memorable  mugs = prompts  incentive  establishes norm influencing behaviour change

71 Climate Smart Training Session #2 exercise: engagement plan for your behaviour-change strategy

72 Climate Smart Training Session #2  be specific and focus on the critical action  potential impact  one-time or repetitive  minimize barriers, maximize benefits  use commitments, norms, incentives, social diffusion, and/or structural changes influencing behaviour change

73 Climate Smart Training Session #2 wrap up  complete your inventory  coaching call #2  finalize and submit list of reduction strategies Nov 19 session 3
