SB-10 & OAA PT-36 Ontario's Energy Code Basics

Time 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM

Webinar Description

In 2016, the OAA issued a series of Practice Tips (PTs) on energy conservation regulations, ASHRAE 90.1, SB-10, and SB-12, which offer architects guidance on the content of the standard and regulations. The PTs are made freely available to owners, designers, builders, suppliers, and AHJs to help make Ontario one of the most progressive energy and GHG jurisdictions in North America. This presentation will review these PTs and the referenced standards. More specifically, the presentation will address SB-10’s prescriptive solutions and the latest changes issued by the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH).

Learning Objectives

  1. Be exposed to expose the energy conservation resources available from the OAA.

  2. Review the fundamentals of building envelope energy transfer.

  3. Understand the building envelope and GHG emission requirements of Ontario’s Energy Code, SB-10.

  4. Learn about the prescriptive compliance options.
