Retrofitting residential neighbourhoods for 80% greenhouse gas reductions: Focus on Burnaby

With special presenter: Ellen Pond

Ellen will be looking at alternate energy systems for domestic energy demand, neighbourhood design changes to move us to a transportation mode shift, and local food production possibilities. She will focus on the energy component, particularly how all of the sectors intersect across local landscapes, and what the energy/food/transport integrated possibilities are to move to low-carbon neighbourhoods that are also wonderful places to live.
