Fanshawe College has announced that it has received over $1.3M in funding to retrofit its Kestrel Court residence. The funding comes from Natural Resources Canada’s Green Infrastructure – Energy Efficient Buildings Program and will be used to upgrade the building’s components and exterior to reduce energy consumption by at least 70%. Fanshawe students and faculty will work alongside industry partners on the project, and the retrofits will also be used as a research study. “The Kestrel Court project offers a unique opportunity to provide a transformative model to reduce carbon emissions from existing low-rise housing throughout Canada,” said Dean of Fanshawe’s Centre for Research and Innovation Alison Ewart. “This research will inform new, leading-edge programs at Fanshawe that will be the model across Canada.” Fanshawe| Newswire Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
