Embodied Carbon: In the Virtual Lab with BCIT
Recording of a Webinar Presentation | taught by Chris Magwood, Endeavor Centre & Alex Hebert, BCIT
Buildings account for more than 40% of global carbon emissions. Most of us working on energy efficiency in buildings focus on the carbon associated to powering our houses, with a strong effort going towards reducing energy needed for heating and cooling. With close to half of those global carbon emissions from buildings are associated to the materials used by the construction industry, more consideration needs to given to both operation and embodied carbon.
Chris Magwood from the Endeavor Centre (Peterborough, Ontario) and the BCIT Zero Energy Buildings Learning Centre (Burnaby) have been collaborating to bring to BCIT’s high-performance building lab low-embodied carbon construction knowledge.
During this two-hour session recorded from both the Burnaby lab and Peterborough, Ontario, participants will:
