is a part of the greater environmental movement.
The REEP project completed 2,491 home-energy evaluations between May 1999 and April 2001 (and more than 3,700 by December 2002).
The ability of REEP to apply each of the four dimensions of integration--disciplinary, scalar, stakeholder and issues--in a community-level study will be examined in the next four sections.
REEP included a detailed technical energy evaluation conducted with HOT 2XP modeling software provided by the Office of Energy Efficiency (OEE), Natural Resources Canada, to identify upgrades that could be made and to calculate potential energy savings and cost savings, as well as the expected new EGH rating for each house.
REEP used the home energy evaluation tool EnerGuide for Houses (EGH) -- a national programme designed and developed by the federal government.
The REEP model is a unique delivery agent of EGH, which involves a partnership between the Faculty of Environmental Studies at the University of Waterloo (UW) and the Elora Centre for Environmental Excellence, a member of the Green Communities Association (GCA).
Energy-use data from REEP have been used to inform municipal growth management strategies, and the evaluations have become part of local utilities' conservation and demand management initiatives.
To date, over $3,000,000 has been spent locally by REEP customers on such upgrades.
REEP Green Solutions is another innovative Waterloo Region leader, combining expertise with creative analysis.
Our REEP House for Sustainable Living carries the learning further, with tours and open house Saturdays to demonstrate achievable energy upgrades, from draft- proofing to electricity conservation.
The sermons might have been wasted on those who just wanted to get their groove on, but Reeps One's collaboration with another beatboxer, Tom Thumb, was a mind-blowing spectacle anyone could appreciate.
Ping-ponging their vocal effects back and forth, it wasn't long before Reeps One had the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand.
