Christian Cianfrone, Zero Emissions Buildings Exchange (ZEBx), Executive Director
Zachary May, Director, Building Codes & Standards, Province of British Columbia 
Richard Yancey, Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex), Executive Director

Zachary May developed and introduced the BC Energy Step Code - providing a roadmap in the code to Net Zero Energy Ready buildings by 2032. Fostering innovation, industry knowledge and capacity building is critical to the successful advancement of low-energy building construction. For a particular construction market, these objectives can be greatly accelerated through the creation of Building Centres of Excellence. Christian Cianfrone, Executive Director of The Zero-Emissions Building Exchange (ZEBx, Vancouver) and Richard Yancey, the Executive Director of the Building Energy Exchange (BE-Ex, New York), along with Zachary, will discuss the important role Centres of Excellence can play to support policy making and market transformation for low-energy construction.
