Ian Jarvis, President of Enerlife Consulting, is chairing the Building Energy Efficiency stream of panels at Energy Matters Summit 2012 bringing together a wide range of stakeholders to present a comprehensive overview of how performance-based conservation is being used to achieve deep, sustainable energy and water use reductions in buildings.

The opening panel provides an overview of evidence-based energy performance assessment over the past decade, from Energy Star and The Living City programs to the CaGBC pilot projects, REALpac 20 by ’15, Race to Reduce and the Ontario Ministry of Education’s province-wide benchmarking of schools. The second panel presents building owners from different sectors exploring how they are successfully applying it. The third panel demonstrates the alignment of government policy, regulations and programming, while the fourth present how leading product and service providers are adapting to the challenges and opportunities of this emerging “new normal.”
