Starting in 2009, VITP engaged in an energy audit  in effort to take building operations beyond LEED and to showcase VITP in the area of sustainability in Canada.  Firstly, VITP utilizes real-time energy monitoring to increase its energy efficiency thanks to BC Hydro’s new Continuous Optimization program and Pulse Energy Software.  Through the program, which aims to improve the operating efficiency of VITP, the Tech Park received a comprehensive energy audit. All suggested changes in the audit are now live resulting in lower operating costs to VITP’s tenants.

During the first summer alone VITP saved over $8,000 in natural gas bills, reduced yearly gas consumption by 6%, and cut greenhouse gas emissions by 35 tonnes.  Pulse Energy recently wrote a case study detailing how VITP is considered one of Canada’s most efficient office environments!
