In 2019-2020, the Biosphere Institute will launch a new participatory workshop series that engages Canmore residents and businesses in efforts to reduce their energy consumption. These efforts are important: Over 50% of Canmore’s greenhouse gas emissions come from energy use in residential and commercial buildings.

This new workshop series will highlight energy conservation measures such as retrofits, energy efficient building practices, energy benchmarking, energy labeling, and adoption of renewables. Residents and businesses who participate will help to design workshop content, based on what they most want and need to learn about energy efficiency in order to take action. They will also identify measures to reduce their energy use, and they will receive help in implementing those measures.

Stay tuned for more information, and contact us if you’re interested in participating!
