SEMINAR 2 Minimum requirements for Lighting systems: Municipality outlook

Greg McCall, P.Eng is the City of Vancouver’s Energy Policy Specialist responsible for energy policy development, implementation and enforcement for new and existing buildings within the city. As a mechanical engineer, Mr. McCall’s experience in the consulting world, coupled with his experience in program development, allows him to balance the effects of city policy and develop systems that add value at both the policy and implementation levels. Mr. McCall developed Vancouver’s “energy checklists” and supports compliance enforcement by providing training to city permit review and inspections staff as well as industry designers and contractors. Vancouver’s recognized leadership in building energy has allowed Mr. McCall the opportunity to sit on several committees that guide energy policies at the provincial and national levels.


The presentation will be covering the City of Vancouver’s current enforcement process for lighting system design and installation requirements as well as how they may evolve in 2018 and 2019.
