Speaker Bios

Presented by Kelsey Carriere, coordinator for the Glassworks Sustainable Community project, Bachelor of Environmental Studies and Masters of Urban Planning.

In planning for more sustainable and environmentally conscious building methods, the days of a car in every garage and a furnace in every utility room have gone the way of the dodo. We will explore dozens of examples of locally appropriate heating and energy systems at the community scale from waste wood district heating to seasonal thermal energy storage.
