Made possible by the continued support from Fondation 3E, this event celebrated the 2012-2013 student projects on Novenber 25, 2013. Outstanding McGill students showcased their projects and shared their results. The projects dovetailed with the mission of Fondation 3E to increase energy literacy in Canada. Ways of reducing energy use, in particular from non‐renewable sources, in housing, community planning, transportation, and other aspects of the built environment were explored in this event. In addition, guest speaker, Alex Hill (M.Eng, PMP, LEED AP), from Dunsky Energy Consulting Inc., gave a presentation on "Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Community Housing".
