城市和SD43一同减少碳排放量

2015-5-20 21:36| 发布者: RexDong| 查看: 833| 评论: 0|来自: Tri City


SD43和Port Moody,Coquitlam和Port Coquitlam通过安装新的灯光和加热设施,正在有效减少大约有30%的温室气体排放。

根据BC Climate Action Charter,本地政府需要报告他们在减少碳排放上的工作,所以这周很多的部门都在做账单以便达成省政府的要求。

周一,Coquitlam宣布城市将会在2015年底之前达到节能减排30%的计划。SD43也是如此,排放有着26%的减少。

在Port Moody,安装新型采光设施以及低发射率的屋顶带来了每年335000千瓦的减排。


重大成就

在PoCo,相似的工程在Rec Centre开始实施建设,并总共可以带来每年超过一百二十万千瓦的节能,这些能量可以供117个家庭一年使用。

在Coquitlam,新的热能系统正在在SD43安装,SD43已经有五年在节省自己的碳排放量。每年SD43都要给Pacific Carbon Trust支付大量现金来做到碳排放中和,这笔资金大概有¥215575每年。

但是SD43正在进行有效的改革,并且在这五年里,SD43的成果卓越, Wayne Cousins,BC Hydro的教育账户负责人说到。他还在周二给学区颁发了十大节能校区的称号。

“你们不断的努力使得你们的节能减排工作比其他学区都要更明显,”Dave Sands,学区的能源负责人说到。他认为职员和学生的努力使得学区的节能减排工作有了卓越成绩。


新的工作项目

去年,举例来说,学区减少了7.5%的电能和能源消耗,16%的纸张消耗,气体排放减少了7.5%。因此,学区便不用支付更高费用处理碳排放。

学区正在紧张进行新的工作,其中包括六个新的加热设施升级,十个节能光源安装,并且更换打印设施以便于减少打印耗材浪费。


School District 43 and the cities of Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam are cutting greenhouse gas emissions by up to 30% with massive retrofits of lighting and heating as well as changes in behaviour.

Local governments are required to report on their progress in achieving their carbon neutral goals under B.C.'s Climate Action Charter, and this week many are tallying up their efforts in a bid to meet provincial regulations.

On Monday, the city of Coquitlam announced it was on track to achieve its goal of reducing greenhouse gasses by 30% by the end of 2015. SD43 is on the same wavelength with a 26% reduction.

In Port Moody, a major project to retrofit lighting and install a low-emissivity ceiling at the arena resulted in an annual savings of 335,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) and is keeping the ice cooler while using less energy.

BIG GAINS

And in PoCo, similar upgrades at recreation centres and other facilities is saving about 1.2 million kWh, or enough energy to power 117 households for a year, with additional upgrades planned for the city operations centre, city hall annex and parks washrooms.

In Coquitlam, the city's Thermenex energy system helped it achieve its goals while SD43 is in the midst of a five-year plan to shave its carbon emissions so it doesn't have to pay so much money to the Pacific Carbon Trust to be carbon neutral. The cities don't have to pay carbon offsets but SD43 has to find $215,575 in its budget to offset its carbon emissions.

But SD43 is making some significant changes and in five years has made remarkable progress, said Wayne Cousins, BC Hydro's education sector key account manager, who awarded the school district with a top 10 Power Smart customer award at a board of education meeting Tuesday.

"You've more consistently achieved energy savings than other districts," he said, singling out Dave Sands , the district's principal of energy and sustainability, for much of the work encouraging staff and students to change their behaviour and promoting energy-saving upgrades.

NEW PROJECTS IN THE WORKS

Last year, for example, the district cut electricity and natural gas consumption by 7.5% each, paper use by 16% and fleet emissions by 7.5%. As a result, it doesn't have to pay so much in carbon offsets.

The district is also busy on new projects to cut energy use, including six projects to optimize energy use at schools, six heating plant upgrades and 10 lighting retrofits as well as recommissioning schools so they conserve energy better and replacing copiers while also reducing printing.

Sands will soon leave the post he has held four years to head up training for a new student data tracking system. The energy manager's job, partly paid for by BC Hydro, will be taken over by Matt Foley in the district's maintenance department.
