Allow me to let you in on a secret; managing the energy performance of buildings is a lot like managing a room full of kids: You can watch them like a hawk and everything is fine, nothing to see, but turn your back for a moment and all hell can break loose. If you think that your buildings are performing perfectly when you’re not watching, then put yourself in the same category as parents who think their kids are always little angels: You’re deluded.View Newsletter

For many councils, providing an effective way to communicate building energy efficiency and sustainability projects to the broader community can be challenging. It is rightly seen as an important role of council, and in some instances is a mandatory component of green building projects, but is an area that often comes up short.
This webinar will discuss those challenges and some technology options that can be used to more effectively engage the community, and council staff, around these initiatives. Topics covered will include:
