Get the Real Dirt on Remediation Certificates (Webinar)

May 12 2010 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

 

When contaminated land is remediated and re-used, one of the biggest concerns for owners and developers is whether the government will hold them liable in the future for the land’s condition, especially if remediation standards change.  In 2009, Alberta Environment introduced the remediation certificate as a voluntary tool that could address some of those concerns.

On May 12, 2010, 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm, join Cindy Chiasson, Executive Director of the Environmental Law Centre, to learn more about remediation certificates.  Topics will include:

  • What is a remediation certificate?
  • Do I need one?
  • How do I get one?
  • What protection will it give me?
  • Where can I get more information about remediation certificates?

Approaching Net Zero Energy at the Lowest Possible Cost: A Step-by-Step Path

Apr 15 2010 - 1:00am

Peter Amerongen, Habitat Studio and Workshop Ltd.

Free presentation and discussion. Free refreshments at 6:30 pm

Getting as close as possible to Net Zero Energy here on the northern prairies can be a daunting and expensive challenge. With our cold weather and long winter nights it requires a careful blend of conservation in all its forms, passive and active solar collection, as well as solar electricity.

Having worked through the obstacles to net zero energy for three successful projects to date Peter Amerongen, of Habitat Studio and Workshop Ltd, has begun to identify a logical series of steps for designing for maximum net energy reduction at the lowest incremental cost. The sequence that he will present will apply as well to net zero ready and near zero projects. Read more about Approaching Net Zero Energy at the Lowest Possible Cost: A Step-by-Step Path
