BC Insulators Green Team connects at QUEST conference

QUEST 2014

The BC Insulators trade show Green Team was on hand for the Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow – QUEST – conference and trade show at the Bayshore Hotel in Vancouver from December 1-3..

The event had a series of informative speakers and presenters on District Energy systems and their part in the urban landscape moving forward.

The Vancouver area already has a number of District Energy systems including Central Heat, South East False Creek, the River District, SFU Univercity district, Richmond Olympic Oval area, UBC, proposed Cambie corridor system, and BCIT. These systems are either gas fired, sewage heat recovery or Biomass fuelled.

Bc Insulators made a number of excellent connections at the event including representatives from BOMA -the Building Office Managers Association, Concert Properties, the City of North Vancouver, the University of BC, the University of Northern BC, Comox/Courtenay Regional District, to name a few.

We are now becoming widely recognized at these type of events and our “Green Credibility” is being advanced.

Follow ups are being scheduled with interested groups.

QUEST – Quality Urban Energy Systems of Tomorrow, is a collaborative network of stakeholders who are actively working to make Canada a leader in the design, development and implementation of smart energy communities.

Smart energy communities are all about integrating energy across land use, buildings, transportation, waste, water, and related infrastructure.
