Showcase Topic:

Maple Leaf Gardens Redevelopment

A new Ryerson University Sports and Recreation Centre is being built at Maple Leaf Gardens, a historic Toronto landmark and one of the most famous buildings in Canada. The revitalization of the Gardens is a joint effort involving Ryerson University, Loblaw Companies Limited, and the federal government. Ryerson students have been at the forefront of making the new centre possible. In a spring 2009 referendum, students voted overwhelmingly to increase their athletic fees to support a new sports and recreation centre. The fees will provide $20 million for the new facility. On Dec. 1, 2009 the government of Canada announced that it was pledging $20 million to the project, and Loblaw and Ryerson announced that they would launch a joint fundraising effort for another $20 million, including a $5 million contribution from Loblaw. The facility will be completed by March, 2011.

US DOE Solar Decathlon
North House Entry

Team North - Ryerson University - 2009 Solar Decathlon Competition

Dr. Alan Fung, together with former Ryerson University students, Toktam Saeid and Aya Dembo, will be providing an overview of Team North's competition entry into the 2009 Solar Decathlon Competition.

In October 2009, Team North, a consortium of University of Waterloo, Ryerson University and Simon Fraser University, competed in the US Department of Energy (D.O.E.) 2009 Solar Decathlon competition. Team North’s mission was to design and deliver North House, an energy efficient solar-powered home while training Canada’s next generation of leaders in sustainable design. In North House, the PV system on the roof was the primary energy generation, complimented by a custom PV cladding system on the south, east and west facades. A solar assisted heat pump system including a three-tank heat transfer and storage system, the slightly tilted evacuated-tube solar thermal collectors on the roof and a variable capacity heat pump met the hot water and space heating demands. A second variable capacity heat pump was utilized for space cooling. The presentation presents the HVAC system with the real-time results as measured during the duration of 10-day competition in Washington DC. Despite the fact that the house experienced severe weather changes during the competition, it was identified  as being net-positive while maintaining the required level of thermal comfort as evidenced by the 3rd place finish in the Comfort Zone contest, 3rd place finish in Net-Metering , and ranked 4th place in the final competition.
