ENERGY FLEXIBLE BUILDINGS – PUBLIC SEMINAR

Energy flexible buildings have the potential to become assets for the electric grid, by providing demand response (load-shifting, peak-shaving) and decentralized generation.

The International Energy Agency’s Energy in Buildings and Communities Programme has recognized the importance of energy flexibility and sponsored the “Annex 67” research project. World experts participating in that project will be at Polytechnique Montréal for a working meeting on October 10-12. At that occasion, the Institut de l’énergie Trottier is organizing a public seminar on energy flexible buildings, where international and Canadian achievements and perspectives will be presented and discussed.

The event is free, but registration is required.

When :
Friday – October 12th 2018, 1pm – 5 pm

Where :
M-2004, Polytechnique Montréal (pavillons Lassonde)
2700 chemin de la tour
Montréal, Qc
H3T 1J4
