Eco-Quartier Lachine-Est: Final student presentations (ENCS 691: Urban Energy Systems)

Date & time
Wednesday, July 15, 2020
2 p.m. – 5 p.m.

This event is free






The Final Presentation of the ENCS 691 GA summer course, will showcase the student's proposals for sustainable urban energy systems, based on the development of the real-world project Eco-Quartier Lachine-Est.

Valuable input from experts, local decision-makers, developers, and community groups, supported the graduate engineering students in understanding the complexity, the chances, and the obstacles of the project. Under the supervision of the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Smart, Sustainable and Resilient Communities and Cities Prof. Ursula Eicker, four groups developed the first innovative concepts for an Eco-Quartier Lachine-Est:

Group 1: Buildings, materials, and energy demands

Group 2: Renewable energy supply and storage

Group 3: Waste and waterwaste

Group 4: Transportation, public/ green spaces and urban farming, urban food supply system

Students will present their concepts, based on two main scenarios concerning density parameters that required integrated approaches. They will explain what impact their concepts have on life, buildings quality, cost, transportation, mobility solutions, the integration of innovative solutions, and financial viability and feasibility. The different outcomes aim to present the pros and cons of various sustainable energy approaches and their applicability within innovative Eco-Quartier projects.
