HH Angus’ headquarters building, owned by Rosseau Real Estate, has won a ‘Greatest Energy Reduction’ award in CivicAction’s 2015 “Race to Reduce”. The awards, presented at a gala event on November 7, 2015, celebrate CivicAction’s smart energy office challenge winners.  We’re very proud that HH Angus’ site reduced energy consumption by 17.78%! We congratulate our friends at Rosseau Real Estate, and look forward to continuing our joint focus on energy efficiency.

From CivicAction’s press release Nov 9, 2015:

Participants in the smart energy office challenge took sustainability to new heights, celebrating a drop of close to 193 million ekWh or 12.1 per cent in collective energy use over four years, charging past the program’s four-year target of 10 per cent. That’s equivalent to taking more than 4,200 cars off the road and putting $13.7 million back into office landlords’ and tenants’ pockets.

“We set an ambitious target four years ago and today, we exceeded it,” said Sevaun Palvetzian, CEO, CivicAction. “The Race to Reduce is a great example of what’s possible when people from opposite sides of the table come together and work towards a shared goal.”

With winning buildings located in Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga, Vaughan, Markham and Toronto, the final Race to Reduce awards ceremony saw representation from leading office building owners, tenants, and workers from across the region and showed how little energy is needed to run a building while meeting tenants’ and their employees’ needs. CivicAction’s Race to Reduce is one of the largest regional energy challenges in the world, with 196 buildings participating representing more than 69 million square feet or 42 per cent of the commercial office space in the region.

Sixty-four buildings of various sizes and ages earned a Greatest Energy Reduction Award by achieving a 10 per cent or greater reduction across the four years of the Race (2011-2014). Twenty-one of these buildings reduced their energy use by more than 20 percent.

Ideation: The Missing Link to Renewable Energy

The Missing Link to Renewable Energy

TORONTO – April 16, 2015                                                                                                                 HH Angus was proud to host Dr. Donald Sadoway, one of TIME Magazine’s ‘World’s 100 Most Influential People 2012’, speaking on “The Missing Link to Renewable Energy.”

HH Angus’ IDEATION forums support the exploration of innovative ideas, and they were very pleased to showcase Dr. Sadoway’s work.

The current challenge with alternative energy is that the intermittent nature of solar and wind sources makes it difficult to fully capitalize on their generating capacity. Dr. Sadoway and his team of students at MIT have invented a battery technology with the potential to harness the full power of alternative energy by storing excess electricity that is often spilled from the grid at peak production times.

We know the future of the energy economy will not look like it does today. Dr. Sadoway’s battery technology, which has the potential to harness the full power of alternative energy, is a step toward the future of renewable energy.
