The University of Victoria is undertaking a study to determine the feasibility of constructing a Biomass Thermal Energy Plant at the Gordon Head Campus. This open house is the first step in an eight-month exploratory process in which people are being asked for their input.
- WHY?: UVic has set targets to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and increase renewable energy use. A biomass plant fueled by wood waste has the potential to allow us to significantly exceed our GHG reduction targets and save on energy costs. The project can also offer research and teaching opportunities.
- WHEN & WHERE?: Wednesday, March 27, 2013 | 3:00 – 7:00 pm, Student Union Building, Upper Lounge, University of Victoria
- WHO?: You! Your input matters and will influence the outcomes of the study. In addition to obtaining your input, the open house will provide the opportunity to learn about the feasibility study and biomass thermal energy.
- INTERESTED BUT CAN’T ATTEND? There will be future opportunities to participate in the process, including two open houses scheduled for the fall of 2013. Also, watch for updates on the UVic Campus Planning & Sustainability website.
