WISE Lecture Series: Energy-Secure, Adaptable Housing and Infrastructure for Remote and Northern Communities Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 — 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM EDT

Housing in too many of Canada's remote communities is in deplorable condition. Peter Russell, president of RESTCo seeks to make this fact a mere memory. Join us April 19 for an in-depth discussion of approaches that can be taken to boost the production of low-energy housing through innovations in structure, fabrication, delivery, and associated infrastructure.

Speaker biography:

Peter Russell is a Professional Engineer whose experience straddles the fields of Industrial Engineering and Building Technology and is backed by a long-time commitment to seeking paths to greater sustainability.

After graduating in Mechanical Engineering, and then obtaining a master’s degree in Production Engineering, at Birmingham University in the UK, Peter pursued a career in manufacturing industries in the UK and Canada. This culminated in managing a housing prefabrication plant in Churchill, Manitoba, for the provincial government. This was a stepping stone to a second career, in the Research Division of Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) in Ottawa.

He is now President of RESTCo, an Ottawa-based engineering research and science company involved in energy security for remote communities and in oil spill cleanup technology.
