Presentation by Enterra to the Energy Technologies for Sustainable Building Workshop
1) How does energy efficiency and sustainability rank relative to other concerns? How important is it to you?
2) How do you see sustainability in the scheme of things?
3) How do you access the information and technologies you need to design efficient buildings? How can dialogue be improved?

Solid-State-Lighting: today and tomorrow

TIR presentation to the Energy Technologies for Sustainable Building Workshop
Lighting is long overdue for a transformation – it is one of the last major industries that uses primarily a 19th Century technology. 20% of the world’s electricity is used for lighting In the most common bulb 90% of that energy is wasted as heat. By 2025, SSL is expected to reduce North American electricity consumption by 29%, leading to $128.6B in energy savings SSL Adoption will avoid construction of approximately 41 – GigaWatt power plants Reduced energy usage would lower carbon emissions by 50%

About Energy Technologies for Sustainable Building: a technical dialog.

The workshop took place on March 3, 2006 and discussed the need for sustainable energy technologies in the emerging market for sustainable buildings.
It focused on three fundamental questions: What are the needs from a customer perspective? How and to what extent are those needs met by local suppliers? What role is the government playing in helping these markets to develop? To answer these questions, the workshop brought together three groups: those involved in the planning and design of buildings such as developers, engineers, architects; those that supply energy-related technologies into this market and those that influence the market by way of regulations, building codes, by-laws and incentives.
