The performance of EndoTherm was piloted by the University of the Fraser Valley at the Abbotsford Campus at ABB A, B, C, D and G buildings which are all on the same gas meter.

The preferred methodology follows the International Protocol for Measurement & Verification of Performance (IPMVP). A baseline is established comparing usage for the two previous years with Heating Degree Days taken from Abbotsford Airport at a temperature base of 18.5°C.

The consumption after EndoTherm was installed was compared with the baseline from the previous two years.

“The University of the Fraser Valley is committed to mitigate its negative environmental impact that contributes to climate change and the degradation of the natural environment. With 98% of electricity coming from renewable sources in British Columbia our focus has been on reducing our natural gas consumption.”

“EndoTherm was installed into our Abbotsford and Chilliwack campus buildings in early 2018. As a result, we’ve seen a significant reduction in our natural gas consumption and associated carbon emissions. We’re pleased with our expected 18 month return on investment.”
