Union Gas' LEED-Gold Designed Facilities
As an energy company committed to environmental stewardship, Union Gas has recently opened three new LEED Gold-designed facilities that feature innovative environmental technologies and applications. LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the "green building" standard adopted by the Canada Green Building Council and rates the construction and design of buildings based on energy efficiency and a number of environment friendly factors.
Each of the three facilities incorporate a different type of natural gas-fired combined heat and power generation system (CHP) to allow Union Gas to gain experience in a broad range of new technologies.
Check out the seven minute video to learn more about the energy efficient, state-of-the-art technologies in each of Union Gas's new facilities.
Energy Teams - Greater than the sum of all parts: Energy teams can achieve significant savings and results by delivering energy efficiency projects for their companies. See how energy teams from three companies are making a meaningful difference. "Greater than the sum of all parts" video is a first-hand account of how energy teams are helping their organization manage energy better while they are delivering bottom line benefits.
Hamilton Health Science - Performance Contracting Enercase: Hamilton Health Sciences Enercase (pdf) or EnerTalk video: Hamilton Health Sciences implemented one of the largest energy saving retrofit projects ever undertaken in a Canadian hospital. A performance contract with Johnson Controls has made it possible for Hamilton Health Sciences to carry out about $50 million in facility improvements without touching the hospital’s capital budget.
Maple Leaf Foods / Rothsay - Condensing Heat Recovery Enercase: Maple Leaf Foods/Rothsay Enercase (pdf) or EnerTalk video: Rothsay maximized boiler heat recovery at its Moorefield rendering plant by adding five ConDex indirect condensing economizer systems. Installed inside the exhaust stacks, the units recover both sensible and latent heat energy from flue gases, re-using it to pre-heat combustion air, boiler intake, and make-up water.
